What preservatives are used in Nutrisystem weight loss foods?

Preservatives are not required in most of the Nutrisystem® weight loss foods due to the type of processing methods used. Any preservatives that are used meet FDA Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) criteria and can be found in many grocery store foods; these include BHT, potassium sorbate, calcium propionate, and sodium benzoate. In total, over 120 Nutrisystem foods contain no artificial preservatives. If you wish to avoid preservatives altogether, please contact a counselor for a list of weight loss foods containing them.
