Phytosterols are a group of natural fatty substances found in all plant cell membranes. They resemble cholesterol in their structure and hence when consumed, compete with the cholesterol for absorption in digestive systems. As a result, the absorption of cholesterol is blocked and the level of blood cholesterol is reduced. Phytosterols can be found in varying concentrations in fat-soluble fractions of seed, root, stem, branches, leaves, and flowers; however, their concentration is the highest in edible oils, seeds, and nuts.

Key industry players invest extensively in R&D initiatives to expand their product portfolios. Continuous investments in new product development, launches, and acquisitions have expanded the scope of the industry. The addition of functional ingredients has further added value to products. Key players in the industry introduce functional ingredients to add health benefits to products, which has resulted in the introduction of a new market for functional products.
