The American Heart Association operates a “Heart-Check Certification” program that evaluates foods for their heart healthiness, yet a walk through a grocery store today shows that the certification program includes ultra-processed foods with a high sugar content.
Pictured: “Barbara’s Multigrain Squarefuls,” #2 ingredient whole cane sugar, 47 grams of carbohydrate per serving. Confirmed that this product is still on the list as of August, 2019. A companion product, “Barbara’s Multigrain Spoonfuls,” is not AHA certified, even though it has less calories and less carbohydrates per serving (24 vs 47 grams).

The Spoonfuls don’t carry the @American_Heart seal. The Squarefuls do, even though they’re higher calorie and 2nd ingredient is cane sugar. They are also labeled #vegan. We’re in the era of #DiabetesReversal, why don’t more doctors know?
