Corazonas, the U.S. producer of snack foods containing phytosterols for heart health, has switched sterols suppliers. Previously, the brand’s products were made with Archer Daniel Midland’s (ADM; Decatur, IL) CardioAid brand plant sterols. Now, the company is using Cargill’s (Minneapolis) CoroWise sterols.

“Along with our new partnership with the CoroWise brand, we’re excited to give people trying to manage cholesterol some truly delicious snack options that may help lower cholesterol with clinically proven ingredients,” says Corazonas founder Ramona Cappello.

The brand’s line includes tortilla chips, potato chips, and Oatmeal Squares. The company says CoroWise’s ability to decrease “bad” low-density lipoprotein cholesterol have been proven in numerous clinical studies. The amount of plant sterols in each Corazonas product will remain unchanged, with 0.4 g in each oz (one serving) of potato or tortilla chips and 0.8 g in each Oatmeal Square.
