Cholesterol is a steroid majorly associated with heart ailments and atherosclerosis. Biochemically, cholesterol is important precursor of naturally occurring steroids in the body. Cholesterol is distributed in cells across the body, and it is a prime constituent of plasma membrane and plasma lipoprotein. Most common types of cholesterol are High Density Lipoprotein (HDL) – generally termed as good cholesterol, and Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL) – generally termed as bad cholesterol. LDL leads to blockages in the arteries because of lipid deposition and HDL removes cholesterol from the blood vessels and reduces chances of heart attacks.
Some of the food products rich in cholesterol are egg yolk, red meat, and whole-fat dairy products amongst others. The Food Safety and Standards (Packaging and Labeling) Regulations, 2011 have regulated a mandate that requires manufacturers to label all nutritional information including cholesterol on the product. Further in this, the amount of cholesterol must be declared in mg (milligram). The professionals at Cultivator Phyto Lab utilize the most up-to-date methods and techniques for analyzing food & beverages for cholesterol content.
