Corn oil...does anyone use it? I always go to the olive or canola. Force of habit I guess. I was recently contacted by the folks over at Mazola oil. They sent me a bottle of their corn oil to try. I created this recipe along with the help of Mazola's oil. Are you familiar with plant sterols? Plant what?
What Are Plant Sterols?
Plant sterols, also known as phytosterols, are plant-based micro-nutrients naturally present in fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, cereals, legumes and vegetable oils.1 Clinical studies indicate that, when consumed as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, plant sterols can help reduce the absorption of cholesterol in the gut, which, in turn, can lower LDL blood cholesterol.
It was pretty interesting to learn about them. Check out the links above to learn more for yourself.
