Subway Sandwiches Will No Longer Have Chemical Found In Yoga Mats

Rucuss staffFebruary 7, 2014

Subway is making a big change to its signature bread recipe.

The food chain announced Wednesday it will stop using a chemical commonly found in shoe rubber and yoga mats in its bread. The chemical, called azodicarbonamide, is a plastic-based additive used as a bleaching agent in the bread at Subway, the buns at McDonald’s, Burger King and other fast-food restaurants.

The website brought widespread attention to this issue last week. Subway officials claim that the company was already well aware and trying to remove the bleaching agent from the bread.


The news upset plenty of customers because Subway’s motto is “Eat Fresh!” Some frustrated customers unleashed their unhappiness on Subway’s Facebook page.

Moral to the story, don’t believe everything a company promotes. Pay attention to the ingredients of foods you are eating.
