High cholesterol in the blood is a major risk factor for heart disease. But that risk can be significantly reduced by simple changes in the diet that have been shown to lower blood cholesterol levels. One such change is enjoying more foods that contain no cholesterol, such as bread. Both whole grain and refined grain breads have no cholesterol!* So enjoy 3 to 6 servings of bread and other grain foods to help lower cholesterol, improve health, and avoid heart disease.
* Bakery breads and sweet breads made with whole milk, butter, and eggs will contain cholesterol, so be sure to read the package.
