US FOODS® Unpronouncables

At US Foods®, our mission is to help operators stay ahead of their customers’ needs. And because more of those customers are seeking simple, easy-to-understand ingredients in their foods, we’ve begun the process of removing certain unnecessary and undesirable components from our products. These ingredients make up our Unpronounceables List.


This initiative began with the launch of our Chef’s Line® and Metro Deli® branded products, and it grows as we strive to create simpler, quality foods with more transparency. We continue to work toward de-engineering our products by removing certain ingredients – artificial flavors and colors, hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated oils, high fructose corn syrup and MSG, for example – so that what’s left is simply good food.
