Slash Off These 10 Foods High In Cholesterol From Your Diet

2. Fast Food

It’s not a surprise that fast food is included in this list. An average burger with two patties contain as much as 47% of the daily value (DV). Throw in two layers of cheese, onions, bacon strips, lettuce, tomatoes, and a helping of sauce, and the amount balloons to 175% DV. Remember, that just accounts for one piece of burger. Other foods high in cholesterol under this category are milkshakes, muffins, sausages, and sundaes, which we usually pair with burgers.

3. Pastries and Sweets

A typical chocolate cake without frosting has about 27 mg of cholesterol, while cream puffs and brownies contain 43% DV and 6% DV, respectively. Sponge cakes that are made from eggs or animal fats have higher cholesterol content. Packed cookies and cupcakes also fall under this list. Manufacturers often use hydrogenated vegetable oils, which contain not just cholesterol, but also trans fats.
