Subway Announces Removal of ‘Yoga Mat Chemical’ From Bread After Consumer Backlash


5974747334_96cc5d7fca_z1Subway restaurants, known for their “eat fresh” slogan, are widely regarded as a healthy choice when it comes to eating out. However, what many consumers don’t know is that one ingredient used in their bread, azodicarbonamide, is used in the production of foam plastics, such as sneaker soles and yoga mats. Subway has used this chemical “as a bleaching agent and dough conditioner which allows them to produce bread faster and cheaper.”

Azodicarbonamide has been linked by the World Health Organization to respiratory issues, allergies and asthma; studies show that, when heated, it contributes to tumor and cancer development; when a truck carrying azodicarbonamide overturned in Chicago, it caused many people in the area to complain of burning eyes and skin irritation, and the chemical has been banned in Europe and Australia.

But now, after an article and petition by the Food Babe prompted angry customers to take to Subway’s Facebook page, the company has responded:

“[Y]ou’ll be happy to hear that we are already in the process of removing azodicarbonamide from our bread as a part of our bread improvement process. While the ingredient is approved by the USDA and FDA, it will be removed from all our breads soon.”

to Time, “A Subway representative told the Associated Press that the process began before the petition, but did not say when it will be complete. ‘The complete conversion to have this product out of the bread will be done soon,’ Subway said in a statement.”

  1. Yep. I happen to subscribe to the Food Babe’s blogs and she has been spot on with info on what some of these restaurants and food companies are really putting in the food and calling it all natural, fresh or any given term that alludes to nutrition in a positive light. Not surprised at all hearing this about Subway. I’m not convinced that the meat used is real and I know from past experience that any hot sub on their menu entails them sticking the meat into the microwave!! So the whole premise about eat fresh as far as I’m concerned is a fallacy just from that observation!

    People, plan your meals! I speak from experience! That way, you know what you’re eating and what is in your food!

  2. Have you heard of monsanto their is probably almost no such thing as truly organic food anymore out their regardless of where it’s being grown look up monsanto (on youtube “The World According to Monsanto GMO Documentary” )
