Why Heart Healthy Foods?
February is American Heart Month and according to recent guidelines issued by the American Heart Association a healthy diet and lifestyle are key weapons in the fight to prevent cardiovascular disease -- the nation's number one cause of death for both men and women. Among their recommendations are achieving and maintaining healthy cholesterol levels. Yet at least 50 percent of the American adult population, or almost 107 million people, suffer from borderline to high cholesterol, defined as a total cholesterol count of 200 mg/dL or higher.
Inspired by the Spanish word for heart, corazón, Corazonas heart-healthy tortilla chips feature whole oats and plant sterols, two proven cholesterol-reducing ingredients. Corazonas are a good source of fiber - with three grams per serving - and are also cholesterol-free, trans fat-free, low in saturated fat, all-natural, and are low or reduced-sodium compared to traditional tortilla chips (varies by flavor).
Corazonas heart-healthy tortilla chips come in two-ounce and seven-ounce packages with a suggested retail price of $1.29 and $2.99. They are also available in a 15-ounce bag at Sam's Club.
