The research is devoted to the development of a method for producing phytosterols in a water-dispersible form by encapsulating a finely dispersed suspension of phytosterols with a nonionic surfactant. As a surfactant, it is proposed to use powdered sunflower lecithin. The results of studies of producing emulsions and a powdered encapsulated form of phytosterols are presented
