Our expert says:
I am not sure where you are looking on the label of the fat-free cottage cheese and the low-fat or fat-free milks? According to the SA Food Tables, full-cream milk contains 3.3% total fat and 14 mg of cholesterol per 100 ml, but 2% milk (which contains 1.9% total fat) only contains 8 mg cholesterol per 100 ml. If you use fat-free milk it contains 0.2% total fat and 2 mg cholesterol per 100 ml. So if you drink 200 ml of the fat-free milk with your sports drinks, then in total you will only be ingesting 4 mg (milligram) of cholesterol. Please note that the suggested safe intake of cholesterol for adults is 300 mg per day. 4 mg of cholesterol thus represent 1,3% of the suggested intake of cholesterol per day.
I hope this helps.
