Canadian biotech firm Forbes Medi-Tech said this week that it has
gained European approval to market its cholesterol-lowering
ingredient Reducol in seven new food applications.

The company received an opinion of substantial equivalence from European regulatory authorities based on prior dossiers of evidence submitted to support plant sterol ingredients.

Reducol, previously approved for use in milk-based products, can now be added to yellow fat spreads (margarine), fermented milk type products, soy drinks, low-fat cheese type products, yoghurt type products, spicy sauces, and salad dressings.

"Our sales opportunities have increased significantly with the approval of Reducol in these key food groups,"​ said Forbes president and CEO Charles Butt.

The company has expanded its 50-50 manufacturing joint-venture facility to capitalize on demand from the EU market, a key market for the ingredient as its non-GMO status has a significant edge over many of the soy-derived sterols.
