What’s New in the Market: Corazonas Cholesterol Challenge

by Jo-Ann Heslin, MA, RD, CDN on September 14, 2010 · 1 comment

We love to try new foods. Some are great and become staples in our kitchen. Others don’t measure up. See what you think.

Corazonas tortilla chips, potato chips and oatmeal squares are all made with plant sterols, natural plant products that help lower cholesterol. In addition, the oatmeal squares are based on oats—another natural cholesterol-lowering food. The company has initiated a 28-day cholesterol challenge to help you lower your cholesterol. The challenge recommends that you have your cholesterol tested before and after the 28-day period, during which you eat 1 ounce of Corazonas chips and 1 oatmeal square a day. If your total cholesterol number does not go down, the company will refund the price of your Corazonas snacks.

Though we are not recommending eating chips every day, this challenge is intriguing and may be just the jumping off point you need to make some necessary diet changes. We’d also recommend that you look at The Cholesterol Counter, 7th edition, to help you keep your good intentions on track.

September is National Cholesterol Month. Do you know your number?

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) requires that V-chips in new TVs recognize the TV Parental Guidelines and the age-group rating system and block those programs that don’t adhere to these standards. But most important is the example set by the others in the environment. This is a top selling toy because boys will always love adventure and battles.
