Following the trend amongst major food brands to increase transparency, Panera Bread today announced it would rid its menu of food items made with artificial preservatives, sweeteners, colors and flavors.

Panera released the full list of items, too. It's called the "No No List" and includes:

Ammonium Chloride

Saccharin

Aspartame

Glycerides

See the full list.

Panera says the items will be eliminated from all bakery-cafes by the end of 2016.
