Is an era of superfood Oreos approaching?


oreo mountainOreos are kind of the epitome of junk food, right? Packaged, processed, and sugary, the beloved cream-filled cookies embody all that healthy eaters avoid (most of the time).

But what if they were made with coconut sugar instead of high fructose corn syrup?

That swap might be a stretch, but according to the Associated Press, the company that makes them is about to make big changes towards healthier offerings. “Mondelez, the company behind the Oreo and Cadbury brands, says that it plans to have 50 percent of its portfolio contain healthy snacks within the next five years,” the AP reported, and that includes efforts to “simplify ingredients.”

The announcement is part of a larger shift away from artificial ingredients, with Kraft, Kellogg’s, and General Mills making similar promises recently, not to mention fast food-realm brands like Panera and Subway.

Since Mondelez is another influential food industry powerhouse (it also makes Ritz Crackers!),  the changes could have a major impact on multiple grocery aisles. Of course, we’ll have to wait and see what the “healthy” changes really look like on the nutrition label before we start dunking Oreos in our almond milk. —Jennifer Hare and Lisa Elaine Held
