Panera Bread known for its sandwiches, soups, and salads, is changing their usual food ingredients. The company announced that they will remove 150 additives from their foods, which is great news!

What foods does this effect? According to Foodbabe, some of the salad dressings, like the greek and poppyseed dressings will no longer have: hydrogenated soy protein, maltodextrin, propylene glycol alginate, and the generic spice blend. The titanium dioxide was removed in the mozzarella, which is typically used in tomato mozzarella flatbread sandwiches. And as for their famous chicken noodle soup? Yes, the chicken soup also had some changes with the removal of: hydrolyzed soy, corn protein, autolyzed yeast extract, and modified corn starch.

This announcement is not Panera's first attempt to create a healthier brand. Last June, the company announced they would be removing all artificial colors, sweeteners, preservatives and flavors by the year 2016.

All these changes are healthier for you, and shouldn't affect the taste so you should still be able to enjoy your favorite foods from Panera Bread!
