Two of Yum Brands Inc.'s largest restaurant chains, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell, announced they will remove additives and artificial colors in their food by the end of 2015.
Because of consumer pressure, the two fast-food restaurants plan to replace these ingredients with healthier alternatives. According to Reuters, "Pizza Hut said it would remove artificial flavors and colors from its pizzas in its U.S. restaurants by the end of July." Taco Bell plans to remove all artificial flavors and colors from its food by the end of the year. The Mexican food chain will also try and remove other additives and artificial preservatives "where possible" by 2017.
These two fast-food chains join a vast number of other restaurants and popular food companies who are trying to offer less processed options since artificial colors and additives are said to causes health problems.
