By wearing red during the month of February*, it is a great reminder that we must fight heart disease head on by making healthy lifestyle changes. Heart disease is still the leading cause of death for men, but more shockingly 1 in 3 women die of heart disease and stroke. Hill and Valley is committed to have heart healthy products for their customers. No Sugar Added Red Velvet Cupcakes & Cake are not only the right color-red-but also provide these timely benefits:
- No Trans Fats! Trans fats raise bad (LDL) cholesterol and lower good (HDL) cholesterol. Too much trans fats in your diet can increase your risk of developing heart disease and stroke.
- One cupcake contains 17 grams ‘available carbohydrates’, 1 gram of sugar, and 260 calories. No other bakery cupcake can top that!
- One slice of cake or cupcake has 15 mg cholesterol and 200 mg or less of sodium. This fits nicely into a heart healthy eating plan.
