Title

dried material comprising sterol, stanol, sterol ester and/or stanol ester, carbonate salt, and

emulsifier.

Abstract

Method of producing dried material, the dried material obtainable by such method, the dried ma- terial obtained by such method, the use of such dried material for preparing a food, a beverage and/or a solid dosage form, and a beverage, a food and a solid dosage form all comprising such dried material, with the dried material comprising sterol, stanol, sterol ester and/or stanol ester, carbonate salt, and emulsifier.

Description

The invention lies in the field of foods, beverages and dietary supplements and relates to a method of producing dried material, the dried material obtainable by such method, the dried ma-

respective materials show a quick to instantaneous disintegration in an aqueous liquid and thus is particularly suitable for the preparation of foods, beverages and solid dosage forms which contain this dried material or are prepared using such dried material. Even more specifically, the dried material comprise as major component an oil, fat or lipid as defined within this present in- vention, such as sterols and/or stanols and/or their esters, preferably with fatty acids, lipophilic

vitamins, polyunsaturated lipids and/or saturated lipids such as certain fatty acids.

Prior Art

The literature offers numerous options for transforming poorly water soluble fat, oils and/or lipids into powders that enable incorporation of those substances in aqueous preparations.

WO 03/086468 and US 2009/0047392 describe sterol ester and sterol powder formulations us-

ing proteins and carbohydrates as auxiliaries. Those protein-containing formulations however are not suitable for acidic aqueous compositions since the protein will flocculate and thus sepa- rate out in acidic medium.

terial obtained by such method, the use of such dried material for preparing a food, a beverage and/or a solid dosage form, and a beverage, a food and a solid dosage form all comprising such dried material.

Specifically, the invention lies in the field of methods of producing dried material and such dried material and their use whereas the dried material exhibits quick dispersion properties, i.e. the

powder formulation that can be used in beverages. However, these gum arabicum-containing formulations disclosed need to be incorporated into beverages using mixers with higher energy- input or even homogenizers due to the poor solubility of those formulations.

It is a characteristic property of such oil, fat and/or lipid-loaded state of the art powders and es- pecially of the highly oil, fat and/or lipid-loaded ones containing more than around 50 weight

Therefore, mechanical forces such as strong stirring and homogenization usually have to be ap- plied for a signifi...
