Heart-Check in the Grocery Store

When the Heart-Check mark is on the label, you can be confident that it represents the science and credibility of the nation’s leader in heart health. In fact, that’s what makes the Heart-Check mark one of the most trusted and recognized nutrition symbols. Foods bearing the mark are building blocks that make it easier for you to construct a heart-healthy eating plan.

The Heart-Check food and recipe certification program, launched in 1995, meets regulatory requirements for heart-health claims.
