I would like to know which lipoproteins are Cholesterol-Carrying and which Triglyceride-Carrying lipoproteins? I know that they are transporting lipids through the bloodstream, but I just recently found out that there are few categories.

Lipoproteins can be further defined by whether they carry cholesterol or triglycerides. Cholesterol-Carrying are the lipoproteins commonly referred to as cholesterol. There are low density lipoproteins (LDL), called the "bad" cholesterol and high-density lipoproteins (HDL), the smallest and most dense, the "good" cholesterol. Those that carry triglycerides: intermediate density lipoproteins, IDL, (tend to carry triglycerides), very low density lipoproteins, VLDL, (tend to carry triglycerides) and Chylomicrons (largest in size and lowest in density).
