Wisdom Natural Brands Supports AHA Campaign to Create Healthy, Sustainable Food System
Date:5/21/2019

While Americans may know they need a healthier diet, what they actually eat is inconsistent with the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Health and Human Service’s Dietary Guidelines for Americans, according to a new science advisory, “Cost-Effectiveness of the US Food and Drug Administration Added Sugar Labeling Policy for Improving Diet and Health,” published May 15 in the American Heart Association’s journal Circulation. The science advisory and AHA’s recent Foodscape Innovation™ symposium, attended by Carol May, CEO of Wisdom Natural Brands®, maker of SweetLeaf® Stevia Sweetener, focused on how to create a healthy and sustainable food system.

One of the main problems, according to the science advisory, is that healthier food choices are neither readily available to nor affordable by many Americans. Developing a healthier and more sustainable food system needs a multilevel innovative approach involving global, federal, state, and local policies; the food and agriculture industries; public health and medicine; communities; worksites; schools; individuals; and families.

“Wisdom Natural Brands has a common goal with the American Heart Association to work collaboratively to change the food system for the better,” said May, who attended the May 7 symposium in Chicago. “When nearly half of all American adults — 117 million people — have one or more preventable chronic diseases related to poor diet and physical inactivity, according to the Dietary Guidelines, it’s time to effect change.”

At the symposium, May and other food industry leaders discussed ways to help consumers have healthier, longer lives in addition to how to bring healthy and sustainable change to the North American food system.

“Wisdom Natural Brands is honored to contribute to continuing conversations with other thought-leaders to transform the foodscape and improve the health of all Americans,” May said.

Switching to plant-based SweetLeaf Stevia Sweetener in foods, beverages and recipes will reduce daily added sugar intake. From SweetLeaf’s natural and organic packets, to fruit-flavored Water Drops™ for a delicious upgrade to still or sparkling water, to the 16 popular flavors of Sweet Drops™ in everyday beverages and foods, the SweetLeaf family of products adds award-winning taste without the negative health effects of added dietary sugars.
