JTM Food Group has responded to growing public concerns regarding the use of ADA, or azodicarbonamide, in bakery products, reformulating its bread items containing the ingredient in an eight-week timeframe. As of May 12, all JTM products are free of ADA, the company said in a news release.
“When anxieties first surfaced about ADA, we immediately created a plan to take the ingredient out of all bread items in our inventory that contained ADA. All of the ingredients used in our products are FDA-approved, but we want to be sure that those who buy our products feel comfortable and confident about their purchase,” Jack Hart, director of R&D, said in the release.
In the coming weeks, JTM will work with its restaurant partners to transition to the newly formulated products.
