Saturated Fat In Cheese Doesn’t Increase Cholesterol

In a study vindicating saturated fat, research in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that habitually eating saturated fat-rich cheese had no impact on blood cholesterol levels.

In this study, a group of 50 volunteers were asked to eat cheese daily for 6 weeks. At the end of the 6-week period, those that avoided cheese and those that ate cheese had nearly identical LDL cholesterol levels.

The scientists noted that the calcium content in cheese may boost the excretion of excess cholesterol by the gut. They also hypothesized that cheese’s fermentation process may influence how it is digested and absorbed by the body.
