Heart Beat: It was only a matter of time: Plant sterols in chips
It was only a matter of time: Plant sterols in chips
Chips that lower cholesterol — a couch potato's dream. A company called Corazonas Foods is catering to that flight of fancy with its Heart-Healthy line of potato and tortilla chips. A one-ounce serving contains 0.4 grams of cholesterol-lowering plant sterols. Keep in mind that you would need to eat two servings of these chips a day, every day, to lower cholesterol, making this a high-calorie way to achieve this goal. So these chips are more likely to make you feel less guilty about eating chips than they are to put a real dent in your cholesterol level.
