Note about beef mince

Beef is often avoided by those with high cholesterol because it’s high in fat. But cooking with extra lean beef mince is a great way to continue eating beef as part of a low cholesterol diet. As it contains 2.4g of saturated fat per 100g (which is higher than the recommended 1.5g) I limit it to once or twice a week and make sure I keep an eye on how much saturated fat I eat for the rest of the day.
