Papa John's is jumping on the all natural bandwagon with numerous other fast food chains including Subway, Panera, and Chipotle. The pizza giant has announced they have already begun working to eliminate artificial ingredients, flavorings, trans-fats, dyes, MSG, and so on from their menu. The cost of this decision is going to be about $100 million.
There are 16 ingredients in the process of being eliminated as Papa John's reworks their sauce recipes and so on. It seems that, literally, every day another restaurant or major food brand announces that they are going natural. The growing trend is positive in many ways including the bettering of the health of Americans, it also sets a good example for the next generation. Too long the extensive, and often scary, ingredients from Twitter.com and listed on food labels have been ignored and the products consumed with abandon. Change is coming and for good reason.
