Is it true that fish contains cholesterol?!

Let us start by confirming that fish is a delicious food that’s excellently healthy. However, and as in the case of any product of animal origin, fish does contain cholesterol but in small quantities that are much lower than in the case of meat, for example.

In addition, we should note that fish, and due to its high content in unsaturated fatty acids and in Omega-3, is a very beneficial food against cardiovascular diseases and its consumption (twice a week, on average – including one portion of fatty fish) helps lower bad cholesterol.

On the other hand, and in order to enjoy all its health advantages, it’s always advisable to grill fish or to cook it in the oven or steam it since frying fish makes it lose almost all its nutritional benefits.
