Peanut Butter Recall 009 Cholesterol has little to do with the fat content of a food. Fat calories come from the saturated and unsaturated fats in a food, not from cholesterol, which has no calories. Foods can be high-cholesterol and low-fat like eggs, or high-fat with no-cholesterol like margarine. Also, don’t be fooled by “No cholesterol” claims on foods like peanut butter, since all plant-based foods are cholesterol-free. Finally, while dietary cholesterol contributes somewhat to heart-disease risk, by far the best thing you can do for your heart is to cut back on saturated fats from meat, dairy products, and hydrogenated vegetable oils.
