Weight Watchers Q & A

Corazonas Oatmeal Squares and Tortilla Chips are tasty and heart-healthy snacks that fit into most diets, including the Weight Watchers PointsPlus program*. Maintaining a low LDL cholesterol level through diet and exercise is an ideal way to keep your heart healthy. Below are some frequently asked questions regarding Corazonas and the Weight Watchers point system that will help you navigate the program and find long-term success in both weight loss and heart health!

What are the main ingredients in Corazonas Oatmeal Squares?

The main ingredient in our Oatmeal Squares is whole rolled oats.

Which Corazonas snacks are the most filling?

In order to stay fuller longer, many experts recommend eating snacks that are high in fiber and protein. Our Original Oatmeal Squares are a perfect option to keep you full between meals, because they offer 5 grams of fiber, 15-16 grams of whole grains and 6 grams of protein each.

What are the Oatmeal Squares good food substitutes for?

We offer a variety of Oatmeal Square flavors that make ideal and healthy substitutes to traditionally unhealthy baked goods, like muffins, cookies and brownies. For example, a blueberry muffin can have a Weight Watchers PointPlus value of 10-14 points per serving! The Blueberry Oatmeal Squares make a delicious substitute for a muffin, at only 5 points per Square. Not only do our Oatmeal Squares give you more "bang for your buck" with half the points of traditional baked goods, but they also keep you fuller longer with satisfying whole grains and protein in every bite.

Since fruits and vegetables have a Weight Watchers PointsPlus value of zero, can’t I get enough plant sterols to lower my cholesterol just by snacking on fruits and vegetables every day?

Plant sterols are naturally-occurring compounds that are found in all fruits and vegetables however, the amounts in these foods are too low to have a significant effect on LDL cholesterol. Corazonas uses a patented process of infusing its snack foods with plant sterols at beneficial levels, which actually increases their efficacy. For example, in order to receive the same amount of plant sterols in one Corazonas Oatmeal Square (0.8 grams), you would have to eat 44 pears, 30 apples, 36 bananas, 53 green peppers, 36 onions, or 61 tomatoes! Each Oatmeal Square has the same cholesterol-lowering properties as 13 pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables.
