Brief Summary:
We aim to examine efficacy of a plant stanolester beverage to lower serum cholesterol and LDL-cholesterol levels, when given with or without a fatty acid preparation. Study subjects are otherwise healthy proctocolectomized ileostoma patients (n=10), who consume stanolester beverage with or without a fatty acid preparation in a random order for one week period after a standardized low-fat meal. Washout period is 4 weeks. Serum lipids, lipoprotein lipids, sterols and fecal sterols and variables of cholesterol metabolism will be examined accordingly.
