Phytosterols include plant sterols and plant stanols. Saturated sterols which lack a double bond in the sterol ring are called stanols. Chemically, phytosterols resemble cholesterol but the distinctive factor between the two is the level of absorption in the blood stream. Cholesterols are absorbed in the blood stream, which raises the cholesterol level in the human body, thus increasing the chances of coronary heart diseases. Phytosterols, on the other hand are not absorbed by the body due to the resemblance in the chemical structure, phytosterols block cholesterol from being absorbed by the blood, thus reducing the triglyceride levels in the body. Phytosterols are found exclusively in the fatty tissue of plants. They are widely used as food additives in sausages, beverages, bakery products and several others. A large number of commercial products which includes both finished products and raw materials contain phytosterols in various proportions.

Antibacterial glass is developed in order to impart bactericidal and fungicidal properties on its surface. The glass is designed in a manner such that it prevents the spread of fungi as well as eliminates majority of the bacteria that form on its surface. It is developed via one of two processes: infusion and coating. Furthermore, antibacterial glass can also be developed using an active ingredient other than silver. These include copper and zinc; however, majority of the antibacterial glass developed employs silver as the active ingredient, in line with AGC's development process. On account of its properties, this glass is used where a sterile environment is required, for example in hospitals, bathrooms, hotels, etc. Technological advancements and the ready acceptance of health-improving devices are expected to be the key contributors for increasing demand for antimicrobial coatings. Additionally, the healthcare industry is a highly lucrative end-use industry for antimicrobial coatings.
