Domino’s: No sugar added in pizza toppings
NEW YORK — Dominoes said Thursday it is no longer including sugar in its pies and toppings.
The company, which makes many of its toppings in the U.S., said the change came after it conducted a study on how much sugar is in its product.
Domino’s spokesman Scott Cawthon said in a statement that it will no longer include any artificial sweeteners, flavors or sweeteners in its pizza topplings or toppings for those under 3.9 grams of sugar per 1,000 grams.
Cawthons said the company will still allow some sugar in a limited number of the pizzas.
“We’re very proud of the way our products are made,” he said.
As the pizza industry continues to grapple with the obesity crisis, some manufacturers have begun testing out ways to include less sugar in their pies.
