  • Patent number: 5498437
    Abstract: In a process for the removal of cholesterol and cholesterol esters from egg yolk, the egg yolk is diluted with an aqueous solution of a water-soluble salt of the cation potassium or/and calcium as well as the anion chloride and/or sulfate or/and an organic anion with a molecular weight of .ltoreq.150. The diluted egg yolk is subsequently mixed with .beta.-cyclodextrin until complexation of cholesterol and cholesterol esters with .beta.-cyclodextrin has taken place.
