Panera Bread Is Banning At Least 150 Artificial Ingredients From Its Food

Last week, Chipotle cut out GMO ingredients. The next day, Tyson Foods announced plans to stop using human antibiotics in its chickens. And now, as The New York Times reports, Panera Bread is getting rid of a whole slew of artificial ingredients from its menu.

By the end of 2016, the chain plans to remove at least 150 artificial preservatives, flavors, colors, and sweeteners — including fat substitutes and propylene glycol — from its soups, sandwiches, salad dressings, and bakery items.

The so-called "No No List" was developed with the help of the Environmental Working Group. Ken Cook, EWG president and co-founder, said in an emailed statement, "With this bold commitment, Panera is showing impressive leadership in the restaurant industry to give consumers what they increasingly demand: food with fewer artificial ingredients and additives."
