As part of our dedication to the well-being of our customers, we’re on the lookout for ways we can continue meeting our customers’ expectations.
We removed certified synthetic colors, added MSG, and partially hydrogenated oils from all of our exclusive brand food products in 2015. These reformulated products are the exact same high-quality and taste shoppers expect from ALDI exclusive brands.
Certified Synthetic Colors
In response to our customers’ feedback, we removed certified synthetic colors from all ALDI exclusive brand food products in 2015. While certified synthetic colors are considered safe for use by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), we’re responding to customers’ interest in using plant-based color ingredients, such as beet juice, paprika and turmeric.
Monosodium Glutamate (MSG)
Our decision to remove added MSG, an artificial flavor enhancer, from our products in 2015 was another example of how we‘re evolving to meet our customers’ preferences.
Partially Hydrogenated Oils/Trans Fats
In June 2015, the FDA announced that it would require partially hydrogenated oils to be eliminated from food products by 2018, so we beat the deadline by two years!
