Supermarket Chain Cuts Sugar Content Of House Brand Foods

January 22, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
Supermarket chain Wegmans announced it is cutting the levels of added sugar in some of its own-label food products to help customers eat a more healthful diet. The company said it is adding less sugar in organic varieties of its foods and “they still taste great”.  The retailer is also reformulating bottled sauces and other products to reduce sugar levels while preserving the flavor. The company acknowledged that it’s not tinkering with its bakery products – that “can be tricky” – but instead is reducing portion sizes rather than cutting sugar content. That means more mini croissants, mini sweet rolls and mini cheesecakes, the company said.
