Clean Eating at Panera
When dining out or on the go, it can be difficult to find some clean eating options. But for the past few years, Panera Bread Company has been dedicated to making its entire menu 100 percent “clean.” In 2014, the company first announced its plans to convert to a clean eating initiative – meaning only serving food that is without artificial preservatives, sweeteners, flavors or colors from artificial sources. By the end of 2016, the company’s mission was accomplished.
Fun (and clean!) facts:
It took two full years and 60 versions to perfect a 100 % clean version of the popular Broccoli Cheddar soup.
The deli turkey comes from turkeys that were only fed an antibiotic-free, vegetarian diet; it has 50% less sodium than their former deli turkey.
Even if you don’t have time to enjoy Panera from the location at the SHOPS Gainey Village, the Panera at Home grocery products are also clean. It’s nice to know that if you’re short on time, but need to grab a quick yet clean and healthy meal, there is a Panera nearby
