Kashi spices up its healthy Heart to Heart line with new cinnamon flavor
LA JOLLA, Calif. Kashi introduced the latest addition to its Heart to Heart cereal line, Kashi Heart to Heart Warm Cinnamon Oat.
The new cereal blends cinnamon and warm spices with six natural antioxidants, including green tea, white tea and grapeseed extract.
“Everyone needs a little variety in their morning routine, so we decided to spice up our popular Heart to Heart breakfast cereal with a new cinnamon flavor featuring hints of other warm autumn seasonings that make it stand out from others on the shelf,” said Keegan Sheridan, natural food and lifestyle expert at Kashi. “Best of all, for those who want a delicious and satisfying breakfast, and are also looking to do more for their heart, this Heart to Heart cereal is certified by the American Heart Association, making it a smart choice for breakfast.”
Warm Cinnamon Oat is designed to target heart health in three ways. It reduces the risk of heart disease by lowering cholesterol with 1 g of soluble fiber from oats; it supports healthy arteries with six natural antioxidants and three B vitamins; and it promotes healthy blood pressure because it is low in sodium.
Each serving provides consumers with 5 g of fiber and 4 g of protein. Kashi Heart to Heart Warm Cinnamon Oat cereal is now available at grocers nationwide in 12.4-oz. boxes.

Nestle responds to allegations over FDA compliance
SOLON, Ohio The situation described in the June 26 edition of the Wall Street Journal bears no relation to Nestle’s recent voluntary withdrawal of Nestle Toll House refrigerated cookie dough, the company stated.
In response to the the article published in the newspaper, Nestle said that it “always fully cooperates with the regulatory authorities wherever it operates, and Nestle is fully cooperating with the Food and Drug Administration at our Danville, Va., plant in this matter. To date, no E.coli 0157:H7 has been found in our plant or in any Nestle product.”
Nestle also said that it rejected the Wall Street Journal’s implication that it did not cooperate with the FDA. The company pointed out that during an inspection of its plant in September 2006, no food safety issues were identified and that it passed its regulatory inspection.
“It is our standard policy to provide the FDA and other government agencies access during routine inspections to all reports that are required by law,” Nestle said of its compliance with the FDA. “Nestle continues to fully cooperate with the FDA on this ongoing investigation, and is openly sharing all requested information.”
