Grating Cheese Cuts Heart Disease Risk


Grating cheese rather than slicing it could cut your risk of dying from heart disease, according to the Food Standards Agency.

The agency is urging consumers to make small changes to their diet to lower their intake of saturated fat, which increases cholesterol levels in the blood, Telegraph reported.

The public should opt for low-fat milk instead of semi-skimmed, select leaner cuts of meat and try to cut down on unhealthy snacks, the FSA advises.

Substituting butter for margarine and frying food in vegetable oil are also encouraged.

Tim Smith, the agency’s chief executive, said that many people were unaware that they could prolong their lives by switching to easy alternatives to their favorite foods.


“It’s important to find ways to cut down, not give up. I learned to cut down cheese by grating it or using stronger flavor and I have cut down to 1 percent milk rather than semi-skimmed, “he said.

People tend to use less cheese in a meal if they have grated it.
