Whaaaaat!!! Nothing is safe even the bread from one of my favorite places. It is high time that the buying public demand from the companies that serve food to the public fully reveal what is in their products. Some places use the term “secret ingredients” to not disclose what actually in their food. Well Subway has lost a faithful customer…I can make my own sammich’!!!
February 5, 2014 (NEW YORK) — Subway says it’s in the process of removing a chemical from its bread as part of an ongoing effort to improve its recipes.
The announcement comes after a food blogger launched a petition this week asking the sandwich chain to stop using the ingredient. A representative for Subway says the change was underway before the petition was launched.
“The complete conversion to have this product out of the bread will be done soon,” Subway said in a statement, without providing further details.
Vani Hari, who runs the FoodBabe.com site, has targeted other food companies including Kraft and Chick-fil-A for the chemicals in their products.
In the latest petition targeting Subway, Hari noted that the azodicarbonamide used in its bread is also used to make yoga mats and shoe rubber.
Definition of Azodicarbonamide: Azodicarbonamide, or azobisformamide, is a chemical compound with the molecular formula C2H4O2N4. It is a yellow to orange red, odorless, crystalline powder. As a food additive, it is known by the E number E927.
Funny thing, in the bible days the people ate bread and it did not have any chemicals in it so what the heck is going on here. The health industry is getting FILTHY RICH because the people are eating things that could potentially have adverse effects to them later in life. This could be one of those things that cause cancer or some other deadly, expensive disease that the insurance companies will assume was already a pre-existing condition and choose not to cover it.
Peace and Blessings
