HARTFORD, CT — Dunkin Donuts has announced it will be changing the recipe of its doughnuts.

The coffee chain said it will remove the titanium dioxide, a food coloring agent, from all of its powdered sugar products, including doughnuts.

Titanium dioxide is commonly used to brighten white substances, like powdered sugar or toothpaste.

Some groups said it could also lead to health problems like inflammation or even organ damage.

Dunkin Donuts made the decision to pull the ingredient after mounting pressure from a group called “As You Sow,” according to a report from MarketWatch.
