Well, technically cashews have zero cholesterol. Yes, they really do not have any cholesterol. In fact, cholesterol is made by animals, just like fiber is made by plants. So no whole plant sources are high in cholesterol.
Cashews do have some saturated fats though and these saturated fats are converted to cholesterol in the body, sure, but the amount is really negligible. For example, a serving of two eggs gives you a whopping 6- 8 grams of saturated fats, but a serving of cashews (handful) will only give you about 2 grams.
