Are Potato Chips deep fried in Palm Oil, good for someone who has high cholesterol?

Or are they good at all for anyone that is serious about Paleo. I am on no Dairy, Legumes and Grains paleo diet. And love my potatoes, my cholesterol LDL is high (4.7mmol/l).

I buy a product in South Africa called Fresh n Krispy http://www.freshnkrispy.com/products.asp

Please could anyone let me know if these are ok to eat, obviously in moderation.

palm kernel oil is pretty low in pufas but palm oil has the same amount as olive oil for the most part.

Palm oil is high in PUFAS? I thought it was extremely saturated

Excuse my ignorance, but what is Fiedler. Oh and if its Pork Lard, does it have to be pastured?

They are pretty high in PUFAs so I would avoid them if you have high cholesterol. Once you get your cholesterol in line they aren't that bad for an occasional treat but you would definitely be better off with something homemade.

As a general rule, anything deep fried in anything is probably best avoided, as this implies heated oil that has now sat around for quite some time before you eat it. Home made food, Fiedler in coconut oil or pastured pork lard would be much better.
