Each March Nutritionists around the country celebrate National Nutrition Month, and this year’s theme, “Enjoy the Taste of Eating Right” is so appropriate for Hill & Valley products. Consumer research has confirmed that taste tops nutrition as the main reason why certain food is purchased over another. One bite of Hill & Valley No Sugar Added Apple Walnut Muffin will make you a believer of this research. Besides great taste, here are some healthy perks:
- Walnuts are a good source of omega-3 fats, which are heart healthy. They have been shown to help decrease your bad cholesterol (LDL cholesterol) levels, just as effective as almonds. That is good news for your heart!
- The pectin in apples helps diabetics maintain a steady blood sugar level and helpful in maintaining healthy lung function.
- Cinnamon and nutmeg have been shown to decrease blood sugar levels and cholesterol levels in Type II diabetics. Chinese medicine also use cinnamon and nutmeg to help treat cold and flu symptoms.
