Is uni high in cholesterol?
It’s one of the first questions regarding sea urchin and the uni inside. It’s GREAT that people want to know the nutritional value of their food. Sea urchin, roe, shellfish and animal products, in general, have a reputation for their cholesterol levels. So there is an understandable curiosity.
