Vegetable Oil Sterol Esters Heart Disease Claim Sought By Lipton

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

Spreads and salad dressings bearing a proposed health claim for vegetable oil sterol esters (VOSE) and a reduced risk of heart disease should be exempted from "total fat" and "low fat" disqualifying levels, Lipton urges FDA in a citizen petition recently made available by the agency. Certain levels of fat and cholesterol can prevent an otherwise qualified product from being able to use a health claim.
