The composition and percentage distribution of the sterols in preparations of the free (I), glycosylated (II), and esterified (III) sterols in the pulp of citrus fruits have been studied. In the sterol preparations, cholesterol, campesterol, stigmasterol, and β-sitosterol have been identified and detected, and three other sterols have been detected but not identified. It has been established that the sequences of the relative amounts of sterols in preparations (I), (II), and (III) of the grapefruit and the orange are similar and differ from that of mandarin pulp.
