UFT Corp ban 50+ ingredients from all food that we sell, including hydrogenated fats, high-fructose corn syrup and artificial sweeteners.

Quality Standards

We believe that the best ingredients belong on your plate. That’s why we’ve banned hydrogenated fats, high-fructose corn syrup, artificial sweeteners like aspartame, sucralose and saccharin — along with more than 100 colors, preservatives, flavors and other ingredients from all of the food we sell in our stores.

Higher food ingredient standards

From the first day we swung open our doors, steadfast and selective have underpinned the attitude behind the standards of the products we sell — and love. When we review ingredients, we consider the interconnected effects of the way that food is processed and regulated by authorities in the EU, U.S., Canada and beyond. All of this happens before hitting our shelves and ultimately your plate.


The food industry evolves and changes rapidly, and we strive to respond by following emerging research and our customers’ expectations. Over the years, we’ve achieved some major milestones in what we restrict, including banning  hydrogenated oils in 2010 and high-fructose corn syrup in 2013.
