PepsiCo trims the fat

Pledges to reduce salt, fat, and sugar content over next decade


PepsiCo is cutting the sugar, fat and salt—but, one hopes, not the fun. According to chairman and CEO Indra Nooyi, the world’s second largest purveyor of empty calories will cut the average salt content by 25 percent within five years, as well as its fat and sugar by 15 and 25 percent respectively in the next decade. “We believe that a healthier future for all people and our planet means a more successful future for PepsiCo,” said Nooyi, who also outlined a company initiative to eliminate full sugar beverages in elementary and secondary high schools by 2012.

  1. We have to use Diet due to diabetics in family, if only Cheney would allow them to use one of the other ingredients which does not cause cancer.

  2. I'm sure the sugar and salt substitutes will be much healthier.

    • after reading a few years back how salt and sugar can be bad for you i got rid of it and don't even notice .. like do you really need sugar in your coffee? i doubt it … sugar and salt and fat are added to make up for lack of taste
