Glory Foods Receives Heart Healthy Certification

Glory Foods' Sensibly Seasoned is the first Southern-style canned product

line to be certified by the American Heart Association

COLUMBUS, Ohio, Jan. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Glory Foods' Sensibly Seasoned side dishes, which are lower sodium, low fat and meatless, were the first product line of its kind to be offered, while still maintaining a savory taste. Now, heart-healthy Sensibly Seasoned products also bear the American Heart Association heart-check mark. Products certified by the American Heart Association must be low in cholesterol and saturated fats, and limited in trans fats and sodium (salt).

While other canned products have claimed to be healthy by reducing their sodium content by up to 20 percent, Glory Foods' Sensibly Seasoned maintains a reduced sodium content of 50 percent -- well above industry standards. All Sensibly Seasoned products will bear the heart-check mark of the American Heart Association. Sensibly Seasoned savory products fit easily into a heart- healthy dietary pattern that is lower in sodium, cholesterol, trans and saturated fat, as well as rich in fruits, vegetables, high-fiber whole grains, low-fat dairy products, lean meat, poultry and fish.

At least 46 percent of Americans are trying to pay attention to the amount of salt in their diets and what they eat. The American Heart Association recommends looking for the American Heart Association's heart-check mark to find foods that are low in saturated fat and cholesterol. The American Heart Association also stresses the cardiovascular benefits of eating a sensible diet consisting of a wide variety of foods.

"Having the American Heart Association heart-check mark on the Sensibly Seasoned product line is a huge step for Glory Foods," said Glory Foods' Director of Marketing, Theresa Potter. "This type of certification allows us to continue to share the good news with our consumers about healthier options, while expanding our line of healthful products even further."
