Not even a week ago, Chipotle announced it will only make burritos with nongenetically modified ingredients. Not to be out done, Chipotle's fast-casual competitor Panera has announced plans to drop 150 items from its list of ingredients.
Here's a line from a Panera Bread commercial: "We've realized the secret to great taste is clean food ultimately."
Panera has recently published its "No No List" online, which includes the artificial preservatives, sweeteners and flavors that Panera says will be taken off the menu by the end of 2016. Some have already been removed from Panera's food.
