JSON output is being encoding in UTF-8-BOM, instead of UTF-8

I need to create a .json file that is just UTF-8, but I am being told that it is coming through as UTF-8-BOM instead (the settings on the output tool are pictured below). Is there a way that I can change it so that it is automatically output in just UTF-8? Or is there a way that I can use another workflow to amend the encoding of the file?

Any guidance or workarounds would be appreciated.

 

Thank you,

It's a real pain. 

 

What I have done in the past is build the JSON in a formula or using the JSON Build tool.

You can then write it out as a CSV with no headers and no separator and it will write correctly but its a total hack.
