Are Benecol products low in saturated fat?
All of the Benecol ‘one bottle a day’ yogurt and soya drinks and yogurt pots are low in fat and saturated fat. Whilst Benecol spreads do not make the on pack nutrition claim low in saturated fat, they all contain our unique plants stanols that are proven to lower cholesterol and are made mostly with different blends of vegetable oils, including rapeseed and olive oil, which are unsaturated fats.
Replacing saturated fats with unsaturated fats in the diet has also been shown to lower blood cholesterol. High cholesterol is a risk factor in the development of coronary heart disease (EFSA).
Always check the ingredients list and nutrition label on the back of the Benecol packaging for the most up-to-date and detailed nutrition information (Including fats, of which saturates and plant stanols), as well as on the Benecol product pages.
