14 Ingredients to Avoid for Your Heart Health

An important first step in creating a heart-healthy kitchen is to read and understand food labels. They are your best reference for assessing what to add to your grocery cart and what to leave on the store shelf. Use the list below to determine what items to avoid buying - many of these ingredients are considered pro-inflammatory and therefore unfavorable to a heart healthy diet.
 If the product contains one or more of these undesirables, don't buy it!

  1. Artificial sweeteners or non-nutritive sweeteners
  2. Corn oil
  3. Cottonseed oil
  4. Fractionated oil
  5. High fructose corn syrup (HFCS)
  6. Hydrogenated oil or vegetable shortening
  7. Margarine
  8. Palm or palm kernel oil
  9. Partially hydrogenated oil (source of trans-fat)
  10. Blended vegetable oils
  11. Safflower oil
  12. Soybean oil
  13. Sunflower oil
  14. Synthetic low- or no-calorie fat "substitutes"
Healthy Meals Made Simple

To create heart-healthy meals, it's not just the ingredients you choose: the way you prepare them also matters. Certain cooking methods are better choices because they can maximize nutritional benefits. Steaming, poaching and using heart healthy fats such as olive oil are a good place to start when cooking for your heart.
