How Do You Get More Plant Sterols In Your Diet?

Using cooking oil is an easy way to incorporate plant sterols into your diet. In fact, according to a recent survey, 81 percent of respondents say they use cooking oil at least once a week.1 But not all cooking oils are equal.

Corn oil contains the highest amount of naturally occurring plant sterols per serving compared to any other cooking oil.

Corn oil contains four times as many plant sterols as olive oil, three times as many as vegetable(soybean) oil and 40 percent more than canola oil.2 Switching to corn oil whenever you use cooking oil is an easy way to add plant sterols to your diet.
