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

5. Yogurt

Yogurt is one of the healthiest foods; it is rich in protein, calcium, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, zinc, and vitamin-B. It also improves the health of your immune, cardiovascular, and digestive systems. It is one of the fermented dairy products, which promotes the growth of beneficial bacteria in the intestine. Besides these values, full-fat yogurt is rich in cholesterol; one cup (or 245gm) can supply 31 mg cholesterol (or 11% of the RDI). Scientific research found that full-fat fermented dairy products (such as full-fat yogurt) reduce the LDL (bad cholesterol), blood pressure, and the risk of cardiovascular diseases, strokes, and diabetes.
