The Tag Labeling Program

Select locations of Market Street and United Supermarkets are making it easy for you to live a healthier lifestyle.

As you shop our stores, you'll frequently see 3 tags on our shelves, indicating products which comply with one of these new programs: Heart Healthy/Diabetes Management, Gluten-Free and Organic.

Here's a brief explanation of each label - we also have an individual brochure for each program at participating stores, so be sure and pick one up if you would like to learn more.

HH DM

If you are pursuing a heart-healthy lifestyle, the first thing to do is arm yourself with knowledge, then put that knowledge to work each time you dine by paying greater attention to the foods you eat.

The American Heart Association has developed guidelines for heart-healthy eating. Newest dietary guidelines from national organizations endorse consumption of at least three servings of whole grain products per day. Making dietary changes that focus on whole grains assists in heart health and diabetes risk reduction and management.

The combination of heart-healthy and fiber intake recommendations encourages persons with diabetes to choose carbohydrates wisely based on individual requirements and medical advice provided by physicians/diabetes educators.

Gluten Free

Gluten is a staple in many wholesome foods. But for millions of Americans with celiac disease, it can cause serious health problems. Celiac disease is a genetically-based disorder in which the small intestine is damaged by a substance called gluten. This results in inability of the intestine to absorb nutrients. The disease is managed with lifelong avoidance of gluten-containing products.

Organic

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has established a set of national standards that food labeled "organic" must meet, whether it is grown in the United States or imported from other countries. Today, when you buy food labeled "organic," you can be sure it was produced using the highest organic production and handling standards in the world. Along with the national organic standards, the USDA has developed strict labeling rules to help consumers know the exact organic content of the food they buy. The USDA Organic seal tells you that a product is at least 95 percent organic.
