High-Cholesterol Foods : Which to Eat, Which to Avoid

4. Cheese

We have several types of cheese, which vary in nutritional components and value. Cheese is a good source of proteins, calcium, vitamin-B complex, and vitamin-A. Cheese also rich in cholesterol; One-ounce (28 grams) provides 27mg cholesterol, which represents about 9% of the recommended daily intake (RDI). It is rich in cholesterol, but it doesn’t affect the cholesterol level in a harmful way. According to a clinical study, a high intake of full-fat cheese (3 ounces or 80 grams daily) doesn’t elevate the level of LDL (bad cholesterol). This study compared full-fat cheese to the same amount of low-fat cheese and equal calories from jam and bread.
