UNITED HERITAGE ANNOUNCES NUTRITIONAL VALUES FOR HERITAGE LITE BEEF(TM)
 CLEBURNE, Texas, June 9 /PRNewswire/ -- United Heritage Corporation, Cleburne, Texas-based holding company engaged in the production and sale of lite beef, announced the latest results from testing Heritage Lite Beef(R) for fat levels and other nutritional values.
 Every Heritage Lite Beef(R) cut tested showed lower fat levels than ever before, fat levels which are substantially below new recommended nutritional levels calling for 30 percent or less of total calories to be derived from fat. Most Heritage Lite Beef(R) cuts tested at 20 percent to 22 percent levels; for example, a cooked three-ounce serving of Heritage Lite(R) T-Bone steak has 156 calories and 3.6 grams of fat (21 percent of total calories from fat). This same three-ounce serving showed only 88 mg. of sodium and 67 mg. cholesterol.
 When new Heritage Lite Beef(R) test results are compared with the nutritional figures for typical poultry, as shown in USDA Handbook 8-5, it is apparent that Heritage Lite Beef(R) is not only lower in fat and calories than whole chicken and turkey, but in most cases, is also lower than skinless servings of poultry, as shown below:
 Roasted Poultry (three oz. serving) Calorie/Fat Count
 Skinless Turkey 146 calories, 4.3 grams fat
 (26 percent calories from fat)
 Skinless Chicken 163 calories, 6.3 grams fat
 (35 percent calories from fat)
 Whole Turkey 178 calories, 8.3 grams fat
 (42 percent calories from fat)
 Whole Chicken 204 calories, 11.6 grams fat
 (51 percent calories from fat)
 Other Heritage Lite Beef(R) cuts tested and their fat/calorie counts are as follows (all are based on cooked three-ounce servings):
 Heritage Lite Beef(R) CUT CALORIE/FAT COUNT
 Sirloin Steak 155 calories, 3.7 grams fat
 (21 percent calories from fat)
 Chuck Roast 150 calories, 3.7 grams fat
 (22 percent calories from fat)
 Rib Eye Steak 153 calories, 4.1 grams fat
 (24 percent calories from fat)
 Arm Roast 150 calories, 3.4 grams fat
 (20 percent calories from fat)
 Round Steak 134 calories, 2.1 grams fat
 (14 percent calories from fat)
 All testing was done by a USDA-approved testing laboratory which is completely independent of United Heritage Corporation or any of its subsidiaries.
 "We are very pleased with these new test results, which show that our years of experience in the lite beef business are continually paying off," said United Heritage Corporation chairman of the board Walter G. Mize.
 "Our product, Heritage Lite Beef(R)," Mize continued, "is produced under a USDA-approved Nutritional Labeling Verification Program, so it is constantly tested to insure consistently low fat levels."
 Mize concluded, "At Heritage Lite Beef(R), when we say 'low fat,' we mean 'low fat'!"
 Heritage Lite Beef(R) is sold by National Heritage Sales Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of United Heritage Corporation, in Albertson's, Star Markets, Tom Thumb Page Supermarkets, Pratt Food Stores, Cerretani's Supermarkets, Triple "A" Super Markets, Jerry's Markets, and Atlantic Supermarkets, and is currently being test-marketed in A & P Food Stores.
