What is and who owns Benecol?


Benecol is the global brand name for a range of great tasting foods containing the unique, patented ingredient plant stanol ester, which has been shown to lower cholesterol and keep it lower with everyday use. There’s even a clue in the name – Bene – meaning ‘good’, and col, ‘cholesterol’.

A daily intake of 1.5 and 2.4g of plant stanols lowers cholesterol by 7-10% in just two to three weeks, when eaten as part of a varied, balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle, which includes your ‘5-a-day’. There are lots of Benecol products to choose from, including yogurts, yogurt drinks and spreads, so making a switch to Benecol and your everyday routine has never been easier.

Check out the different Benecol products and flavours on the Benecol product pages.
