Eggs and Cholestrol

A recent study at Surrey University involoving volunteers eating two eggs a day for 12 weeks found that none of the participants had raised cholestrol levels.

Eggs actually contain less cholestrol now than they did 10 years ago due to a change in the chickens diet. Chickens are no longer fed on bone meal but on a mix of cereal grains and high protein making egg far more nutritious and lower in cholestrol.

A typical medium sized egg aill contain about 100mg of cholestrol, a third of the US recommended daily limit of 300mg.
