Ridgefield, New Jersey (PRWEB) February 10, 2014

Toufayan Bakeries, one of the largest family run bakeries in the US, today announced that they will be participating in American Heart Month, a national campaign to raise awareness and educate people about heart disease that spans the month of February. Toufayan and its delicious line of hearty-healthy baked goods will be featured in the American Heart Association’s® annual “Heart Health Matters” newspaper supplement that will be distributed in major cities across the country, including New York, Los Angeles, Miami and Chicago. Dedicated to providing Americans with the best bread for their families since 1926, Toufayan offers Whole Wheat Pita and Whole Wheat Wraps that have been certified heart-healthy by the American Heart Association’s® Heart-Check Food Certification Program.

“We are very proud to partner with such an influential and impactful organization as the American Heart Association,” said Karen Toufayan, VP Sales and Marketing at Toufayan. “With heart disease being the number one killer of Americans it is important that we do our part to spread awareness in addition to helping on the ground level by making tasty, accessible heart healthy foods that are easy to incorporate into a balanced diet.”

Also as part of Toufayan’s February healthy eating initiatives, Toufayan will be hosting the Teen Battle Chef competition at the Southern Home Show in Charlotte, NC in conjunction with HealthCorps, the organization founded in 2003 by heart surgeon and Daytime Emmy Award-winning TV host Dr. Mehmet Oz and his wife Lisa to teach kids about the benefits of proper nutrition and exercise. A family business, Toufayan is dedicated to teaching the next generation about healthy eating at a young age and preventing health problems before they happen.

In addition to their heart healthy options, Toufayan also offers gluten free, low carb and low calorie breads to accommodate a large variety of specialized diets and healthy lifestyles. Toufayan products can be found in the deli and bread aisles at supermarkets nationwide.
