This is a significant milestone not only for Beyond Meat and for plant-based meats in general, becoming the first plant-based meat and steak product to meet the American Heart Association’s strict standards for heart-healthy nutrition.

Beyond Steak Earns American Heart Association’s Heart-Check Food Certification

With Beyond Steak‘s recent certification from the American Heart Association, consumers can make informed choices about the food they purchase. When you see the heart checkmark on a product like Beyond Steak, this means it meets the American Heart Association’s nutrition requirements, including low saturated and trans fats, reduced cholesterol and sodium, and over 10% of the daily value of essential nutrients.

Beyond Meat isn’t just about making delicious plant-based meat products. The company is committed to improving human health by supporting scientific research on the benefits of plant-based meat to physical well-being. In the SWAP-MEAT study, researchers reported the positive impacts of replacing animal-based meat with Beyond Meat’s plant-based alternative over an eight-week period, including the improvement of several cardiovascular disease risk factors.
