Consumer research shows that shoppers are paying more attention to healthy eating, and their #1 health concern is heart health. The Heart-Check mark makes smart shopping easier and reassures shoppers they have made a choice that can fit into a heart-healthy diet. In fact, the American Heart Association is the authority most trusted by consumers to decide if a product may display a nutrition message or mark.
