Fate of dietary phytosteryl/-stanyl esters: analysis of individual intact esters in human feces
European Journal of Nutrition, 07/16/2012
Lubinus T et al. – The study revealed large interindividual variability regarding the recoveries of dietary phytosteryl/–stanyl esters upon gastrointestinal passage in healthy humans. Nevertheless, there was a significant impact of the acid moiety on the hydrolysis rates; the influence of the phytosterol/–stanol moiety was less pronounced.
