If a product has no cholesterol is it heart healthy?
Posted by Stephan Mackenzie on 22 April 2011 11:18 AM
Cholesterol is only found in animal products, and while animal foods are the primary source of fats in the diet they are not the only source. Saturated fats are also present in products made with coconut oil, palm kernel oil, and palm oil, all of which come from plants. What is more, the fat in coconut and palm kernel oil is actually more saturated than that found in animals. Saturated fats are believed to be more likely than dietary cholesterol to raise the level of cholesterol in the blood.
