【Foods high in saturated fat = high in cholesterol?】Foods containing high saturated fat are often thought to have a significant amount of dietary cholesterol as well, in fact, there is no association between them. Dietary cholesterol is present in most animal sources, while egg white has always been an exception. Dietary cholesterol only contributes to a small portion of cholesterol in the body, an adult daily intake below 300mg dietary cholesterol is suggested. Dietary cholesterol is different from blood cholesterol, the majority of cholesterol is found in the body and is made by the liver, the level of cholesterol is controlled by the self-regulatory mechanism in healthy individuals .
Friendly reminder: Lipoprotein is commonly known as blood cholesterol in the body, a complex of lipids and proteins that is responsible for carrying lipids from liver to the cells and vice versa. A higher level of “bad” cholesterol (LDL-C) and/or a lower level of “good” cholesterol (HDL-C) will have a higher risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease and obesity.
