The American Heart Association has certified Farmland Foods 97 percent fat-free, fresh ground pork as a heart-healthy food product.

The AHA certification means that the product meets the organization's food criteria for saturated fat and cholesterol for healthy people over the age of two.

Each serving of Farmland’s ground pork contains only 1 gram of saturated fat, 65 milligrams of cholesterol and 60 milligrams of sodium. To help consumers identify heart-healthy food – in this case Farmland’s ground pork – the product label will carry the AHA heart-check mark.

The product is sold in one-pound, case-ready packages with recipes and a free seasoning packet.
