LA JOLLA, CALIF. — Kashi Co. has added to its Heart to Heart line of products with the launch of Kashi Heart to Heart Whole Grain Crackers.
The whole grain crackers, available in two varieties — original and roasted garlic — feature six natural antioxidants: extracts from green tea, white tea and grape seed; vitamins E and C; and beta carotene. In addition, the crackers contain 0.4 grams of plant sterols and 75 to 85 grams of sodium per serving.
"Although we made Heart to Heart crackers with natural whole grains, we didn’t stop there," said Keegan Sheridan, natural food and lifestyle expert for Kashi. "We added more heart-healthy ingredients to help reduce cholesterol, support healthy arteries and promote healthy blood pressure. Plus, with zero grams of trans fat and saturated fat, they are great for snacking right out of the box or as a base for your favorite toppings."
