Does WHITE cheese have less cholesterol than YELLOW cheese?
Asked by on May 11, 2011
My mother-in-law is convinced that there is less cholesterol in WHITE cheeses than YELLOW ones. Is she right?
There’s no nutritional difference between yellow and white cheese. Orange and/or yellow cheeses have had color added. Natural, uncolored cheeses are always a shade of white. Both yellow and white cheeses have 30 milligrams of cholesterol in one ounce. 300 milligrams of cholesterol is the daily limit. There is only a third to half the amount of in low-fat cheeses. For example, see these low-fat Cheddar and cottage cheeses or this Laughing Cow brand Light Garlic & Herb Cheese spread.
