Panera Bread to Remove All Artificial Preservatives, Colors, Sweeteners, and Flavors from Their Food by End of 2016

Panera Bread plans to remove artificial preservatives, colors, sweeteners, and flavors from the food in their bakery-cafes by the end of 2016 and have put out a list of the ingredients that have been, and are slated to be, removed. They call it the "No No List."

There are more than 150 ingredients in all, including high fructose corn syrup and artificial trans fats. You can find the full list at:

The company also recently announced that all their salad dressings are now made without artificial sweeteners, colors, flavors, and preservatives.

Currently, approximately 85 percent of the ingredients on Panera’s bakery-cafe food menu are in test or have rolled out nationally without these artificial additives. Reworked items will continue to roll out steadily in advance of Panera’s 2016 deadline.
