This Free List of Low Cholesterol Foods may surprise you. For example, there's no cholesterol in sugar or french fries!
There are a lot of misconceptions about which foods have cholesterol. It couldn't be simpler.
Animal products DO have cholesterol.
EXAMPLES - Meat, fish, bacon, eggs, milk, butter, cheese, cream. Exceptions - egg whites and yogurt don't have cholesterol.
Plant products DO NOT have cholesterol.
EXAMPLES - Vegetables, fruit, coconut, cooking oil, shortening, sugar, honey, nuts, grains.
Bread (most breads - even white bread) does not have cholesterol.
What about baked sweets? Sugar and white four don't have cholesterol, but eggs and butter do. So, angel food cake is cholesterol-free, but custard ice creams and creme brulee are loaded with cholesterol.
It's not hard to find foods to avoid high cholesterol . . .
Besides avoiding cholesterol, you can eat foods that actually lower your cholesterol:
Your body cannot function without cholesterol. It's actually good for you. You make your own cholesterol, no matter what you eat.
But too much cholesterol and saturated fat can cause blockages in your blood vessels. Not good.
