Commitment to Nutrition and Well-Being
Kraft understands that consumers increasingly want to feel good about the foods that they eat.
 Kraft led the industry when it came to making changes that improved the nutrition and well-being of
our products.
 We remain committed to improving the nutritional profile of our products and are always looking for
ways to provide choices that help consumers feel better about the foods that they eat - this includes
everything from improved nutrition to simpler ingredients.
Healthy Oils
Type of fat matters. Oils should replace solid fats when possible because of their beneficial impact on
blood cholesterol. Many of our Kraft salad dressings and Mayo can help consumers increase their intake
of unsaturated fats, have the added benefit of enhancing the flavor of vegetables, whole grains and lean
proteins, and can be used in versatile ways. Planters nuts are a small but mighty food choice that provides
heart smart unsaturated fats.
Beneficial Ingredients
We offer many products with beneficial nutrients and wholesome ingredients such as Lunchables with
Smoothies that provide a good source of protein and an excellent source of Vitamin C, Capri Sun All
Natural 100% Juice. In addition Planters Peanuts, both oil roasted and dry roasted, are nutrient dense
snacks with 7 grams of protein and a good source of 6 essential nutrients. Planters NUT-rition is a line of
great-tasting nut mixes specially designed to help meet the nutrition and well-being needs of our
consumers. Varieties include Omega-3, Heart Healthy and Men’s Health Recommended Mixes. We
continue to introduce new items such as Oscar Mayer P3 Portable Protein Packs which are made with real
meat, cheese and nuts, and are an excellent source of protein.
Simpler Ingredient Lines
We are committed to simplifying our ingredients by offering products with no artificial flavors, colors or
preservatives. We have reformulated some of our iconic brands like Kraft Regular and White American
Singles to contain no artificial flavors or preservatives, while Kraft Regular and 2% Milk American Singles
are colored with paprika and annatto, both of which are derived from spices. We also now make Kraft
Macaroni and Cheese Shapes with natural colors derived from spices.
Quality Ingredients
For more than 140 years, Philadelphia has been making its products with fresh local milk and real
wholesome cream and now we have added more fruits and vegetables to our most popular spreads.
We are also on a journey to improve our Kraft Salad Dressings and recently introduced NEW Classic
Ranch, with more creamy buttermilk and savory herbs and NEW Kraft Zesty Italian, with even more herbs,
spices. and vegetables.
Reduced Sodium
Kraft completed a 3 year effort to reduce sodium by 10% across our portfolio, the equivalent of 13 million
lbs. – almost 1 billion teaspoons. Several of our iconic products like Kraft Singles, Kraft Macaroni and
Cheese Cups, and Oscar Mayer Deli Fresh Smoked Ham achieved even greater sodium reductions.
Fewer Calories
Kraft offers a variety of low or reduced calorie products. Example products include: Capri Sun Roarin’
Waters, many delicious Sugar Free Jell-O dessert options, Philadelphia Light cream cheese, Kraft Fat Free
mayonnaise, Miracle Whip, Kraft 2% Milk cheeses, Kraft Lite and Fat Free salad dressings, and lean meat
options including Oscar Mayer Lean Beef Hot Dogs. Additionally, we pioneered the liquid concentrate
category with MiO, which has provided consumers with a calorie-free way to add flavor to bottled water;
and have recently expanded by introducing Crystal Light and Kool-Aid liquid concentrates.
