Cholesterol,is a derivative of cyclopentanoperhy drophenanthrene,widely present inanimals.It participates in the formation of cell membranes and is an indispensableand important substance in animal tissue cells.Traditional cholesterol is generallyextracted from animal sources such as lanolin and animal brain.
However,animalsources face the risk of animal disease transmission,and there are many impurities,which will cause adverse immune reactions when used in medicine.The users need toprovide regulatory authorities with research reports on the risk of disease transmission,animal protection and a series of materials.For various reasons such as commercialuse and consumer preference,ore and more companies are moving away fromanimal-derived materials and prefer to choose non-animal source products.
This product is artificially synthesized cholesterol from pure plant sources,and has noanimal-derived ingredients.Compared with traditional lanolin,pig,cattle and otheranimal-derived products,the risk is lower,and it is very suitable for the preparation oflipid nanoparticle(LNP)delivery system,used in mRNA vaccines;cell culture,protein drug serum-free cell culture and other high-end drugs,cosmetics.It can alsobe used as a key synthetic raw material for vitamin D and its derivatives.
Startingfrom plant-derived cholesterol,the downstream vitamin D3 series products are usedin feed,health food,and medicine,etc.,which can completely realize the non-animalsource of this series of products,which meets the needs of industry development andpeople's tendency to improve the quality of life and safety standards.
