Corazonas Launches Cholesterol-Reducing Potato Chips

LOS ANGELES, Jan 03, 2008 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Corazonas Foods Inc., creators of great-tasting, heart-healthy snack foods, transforms the all-American classic potato chip into a heart-healthy culinary delight with the launch of Corazonas Heart-Healthy Potato Chips. Patented technology infusing plant sterols into the chips make Corazonas Heart-Healthy Potato Chips the first and only potato chip able to reduce low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, a.k.a. "bad cholesterol." And with a classic potato chip taste and crunch, it's almost impossible to believe Corazonas Heart-Healthy Potato Chips contain 40 percent less fat than regular potato chips!

The five world-inspired flavors include Slightly Salted, Mediterranean Garlic & Herb, Italiano Four Cheese, Pacific Rim BBQ and Spicy Rio Habanero. Debuting in January 2008, these all-natural potato chips have no trans fat and will retail for approximately $2.99 for a six-ounce package.

Just in time for American Heart Health Month this February, Corazonas Heart-Healthy Potato Chips give consumers the choice of replacing junk-food snacks with heart-healthy options without sacrificing taste or crunch. Experts agree that nutrition is a key tool in fighting and preventing heart disease. Corazonas Foods is committed to combating heart disease with each and every bite.
