Adapted EU food labeling regulation for products with plant sterol and stanol esters

According to the new regulation products will be required to bear a statement that the product is not intended for people who do not need to control their blood cholesterol level.

Products that contain phytosterols, phytosterol esters, phytostanols or phytostanol esters, placed on the EU market from 15 February 2014, must carry this new label warning. However, products placed on the market or labeled before 15 February 2014 which do not comply with the requirements of this regulation may be marketed until stocks of the foods are exhausted.
