Although nondairy coffee lighteners made with coconut oil contain 2 grams of saturated fat per tablespoon, or 7 times more than does whole milk, those lighteners usually contain no cholesterol. Yet one tablespoon of such lighteners causes the consumers blood cholesterol to rise to a higher level than does an identical amount of whole milk, which contains 2 milligrams of cholesterol per tablespoon.
Which one of the following, if true, contributes most to an explanation of the apparent discrepancy noted above?OPTIONS
[A]. Nutritionists recommend that adults consume as little saturated fat as possible and no more than 250 milligrams of cholesterol a day.
[B]. One gram of saturated fat in food has roughly the same effect on blood cholesterol as 25 milligrams of cholesterol in food.
[C]. Light cream, a dairy product that contains 5 times more cholesterol than does whole milk, is often chosen as a lightener by consumers who normally prefer whole milk.
[D]. Certain nondairy coffee lighteners made without coconut oil contain less saturated fat and less cholesterol than does whole milk.
[E]. The lower the saturated fat content of dairy products, the less cholesterol they usually contain.
