Nestlé USA Reduces Artificial Flavors In Frozen Pizza’s
Nestlé will reduce salt levels by 10 percent in more than 250 US frozen pizza and snack products and remove all artificial flavours from these foods by the end of 2015.
The company will renovate products across six brands – DiGiorno, Tombstone, California Pizza Kitchen, Jack’s, Hot Pockets and Lean Pockets – as part of its effort to improve the nutritional profile of foods while maintaining or improving their taste, by reducing salt, for example.
By the end of year, Nestlé USA will also add on-pack guidance to these products, to help educate consumers on choosing appropriate portion sizes and the importance of eating vegetables and fruits as part of a balanced plate.
These changes build on Nestlé’s ongoing efforts to improve the nutritional and ingredient profile of its products while maintaining the great taste consumers expect.
“We know people want to feel good about the foods they eat, and they’re seeking foods made with fewer artificial ingredients and less sodium,” said John Carmichael, president of the Nestlé Pizza & Snacking Division, Nestlé USA. “As one of the nation’s largest food companies, Nestlé is listening to consumers and delivering on their desire for convenient, great-tasting foods that have an improved nutritional profile.”
