One of Panera Bread's New Craft Beverages is Naturally Sweetened

Some of the newest additions to Panera Bread's craft beverages menu for the spring season include a Passion Papaya Green Tea and a naturally sweetened Agave Lemonade.

The refreshing new lemonade beverage is made with just a few simple ingredients, including: cold-pressed lemon juice, dried cane syrup, water and agave nectar. The introduction of this new craft beverage is part of Panera Bread's commitment to providing clean options with a focus on transparency, particularly when it comes to the use of sugar and alternative sweeteners.

Health-conscious consumers who are looking to reduce or remove refined sugars from their diets are seeking flavorful natural sweetener replacements such as stevia, monk fruit, honey, dates or maple syrup.
