    Default Subway Soy Scandal

    Marketplace reported Subway's chicken only contains 50% chicken and the rest is soy protein. Subway is denying it and has now commissioned it's own study which found less than 1% soy. So is it a sandwich or a soywich?

    Subway is below prison/airline food. I could care less about the soy, its the 50 other preservatives and fake ingredients that id be concerned with.

    I don't think this is a surprise - just google Subway ingredients and you get a PDF of all the ingredients. The list is a mile long with fillers, preservatives, and chemicals even for simple things. There was a thread on it before. Either way their ingredients are absolutely disgusting and you're probably better off eating fast food hamburgers.

    If you've ever taken one bite of that rubber-like 'chicken' patty they have, it's pretty obvious it's nowhere near 100% chicken.

    Out of all the chicken they tasted, the Subway one looked the saddest. All white in color with the fake grill marks attempts on them. But yeah pretty obvious its not chicken, and I know that when I do buy their subs. Wonder if their Steak is actual beef.

    Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.

    Subway "chicken" is a frozen product that is reheated/baked in store, same as their "meat" balls, cookies, "bread" and steak(?) offerings. Cleanest protein you can get there is the tuna, which is basically canned grocery store tuna but from a much bigger can. People who care about this stuff dont eat there but if you must, a veggie sub without cheese is also ok, since they claim their bread no longer has shoe rubber in it.

    Yep. Just as flavorless as SW chicken. Also, TH's breakfast sausage tastes like it was soaking in toxic chemicals.

    I've been under the assumption that all fast food is at least 50% soylent filler. I'm pleasantly surprised by the other restaurants results.

    Do you guys have the rotisserie "style" (haha) chicken in the US, or oven roasted turkey breast? Both of thosr are actually fibrous meat, I'm guessing super close to 100% meat (they also claim no preservatives etc)

    Subway isn't really healthy eating unless it's a veggie sub or a turkey breast loaded with veggies. If you are going to get one of their chicken meat or loaded meat subs you are probably better off going to McDonalds and getting a quarter pounder. Any time I have had something like a Subway Club I end up being super dehydrated after because of all the salt in their meats.

    I like subway once in a while. usually cold cuts but the sub sauce, s n p and pickles pretty much wash out the taste of the meat anyways lol

    I like salty shit. it'll be the death of me no doubt.

    All those breakfast sandwiches are packed with so much sodium. If I must do breakfast on the road or something I will do A&W breakfast plate, egg mcmuffin or subway with "egg" whites.

    not sure why watching this years ago really opened my eyes: http://www.cbc.ca/marketplace/episod...th-marketplace

    Whenever these types of docs inform the consumers of the fat, salt, and or sugar content, the consumer is invariably, "Oh my God! I"m shocked! I didn't know that!". But all I'm thinking is, "WTF?, how could one not know that"?

    Clearly, it must be because you are so enlightened and see what others cannot. You are the hero this world needs.
