Heart-Healthy Chocolate Bar?

A chocolate bar containing plant sterol esters is promoted as being good for heart health. The bar contains 3.5 g saturated fat per serving. 


Any food product using the FDA-authorized health claim for plant sterol/stanol esters must meet certain criteria, one of which is that it be low in saturated fat (no more than 1 g per serving). This product does not meet that criteria, and also fails to properly phrase the claim on packaging and in advertising pursuant to CFR 101.83 (see list of authorized health claims, including for plant esters -- 12th one down).
