Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, June 03, 2014

Panera announced Tuesday that it will remove all artificial additives from its menu by 2016 -- removing all dyes, preservatives and artificial sweeteners from its food offerings. "Some items may disappear, but what is more likely to happen is for items to be reformulated," said Kate Antonacci, Panera's director of societal impact initiatives. The move is the latest and biggest among quick-service restaurants. Subway recently removed a controversial preservative from its sandwich bread and Chick-fil-A removed artificial dyes from some of its dipping sauces and said it would switch to antibiotic-free chicken within five years.

Good. This will have a huge effect on the taste and appearance of their breads--for the better.

I love the term "quick-service restaurants". Gives the food they serve that hint of legitimacy missed in the term "fast food joint".

I can hardly wait............ healthy fast food. Seems like the two terms don't go together.

Wow, and no one in the federal government had to pass a law or regulations. Could it be that the free market works sometimes?

How do you think the public became aware of the food additives?

If the corporate whores had their way it would be a felony to reveal food additives.

In this case, you make a good point, but don't get carried away with the deregulation crap.

Food without additives tastes and looks like "Nooner expletive". Why do you think manufacturers use them? The key is to use acids, flavorings and preservatives that are as natural as possible. I do not think a complete elimination could work as we could find ourselves food shopping at Whole Foods prices everywhere.
