    No – cholesterol is a by product of animals. So a raw peanut CAN NOT contain cholesterol. They are however high in other fats.

    If however if it cooked (as most commercially available peanuts are), it is likely to be have been cooked in animal fat. If they are, then they are very high in cholesterol.

    It is my understanding that only animal products contain cholesterol.

    High cholesterol levels are a major concern for many people. But happily, peanuts are 100% cholesterol-free!

    This means you can eat them by the bagful without raising your cholesterol level one jot.

  • I was told all nuts and shell fish were. You could read on label and it should tell you. All package foods have to have label by law.
