No more high fructose corn syrup at Papa John's pizza

Latest change is one of many for national pizza chain as it moves toward cleaner ingredients.

Papa John’s is the first national pizza chain to remove high fructose corn syrup from its entire food menu.

“We’ve always strived for high quality ingredients in our pizzas and continue our aggressive push toward cleaner ingredients and menu offerings,” said Sean Muldoon, Papa John’s chief ingredient officer. “We work tirelessly to set the industry’s gold standard for pizza ingredient quality, and this is the next step in fulfilling our promise to deliver better ingredients.”

In January 2016, Papa John’s removed all artificial flavors and synthetic colors from its menu. And, in February of this year, Papa John’s backed up its gold standard commitment by introducing the Quality Guarantee: If you don’t love your pizza, tell us why and we’ll deliver another one absolutely free. By summer 2016, the chicken in Papa John’s grilled chicken pizza toppings and chicken poppers will be raised without antibiotics, as well as fed a vegetarian diet.
