Eating foods high in soluble fiber may help reduce your LDL (“bad”) blood cholesterol level when consumed with an overall healthful diet. Soluble fiber is found in oatmeal, barley, dry edible beans (such as pinto or kidney beans), pulses (such as chickpeas, split peas and lentils), carrots, apples and oranges.
