Subway has been lying to their customers for years! You are not eating fresh at Subway!
Subway was started in 1965 by a 17-year-old, named Fred DeLuca, who wanted to make extra money to pay for his college tuition. He borrowed $1,000 from a family friend, Peter Buck, who would later become his business partner. Their food has always been marketed as being fresh and healthy. The Subway chain is now owned by Doctors Associates, Inc., which in turn is still owned by Peter and Fred. Neither of which are medical doctors, by the way. From what we can tell, Doctor’s Associates, Inc. does nothing more than own Subway, and gives the misleading impression that doctors are being consulted about the nutritional value of Subway’s foods. In fact, there appears to be no doctors involved with Doctor’s Associates, Inc. at all, and Subway no longer offers fresh and healthy alternatives.
Most people give Subway the benefit of the doubt concerning their food items; assuming that they do the best that they can to provide healthy alternatives. However, did you know that the 9-grain whole wheat bread that looks and smells freshly baked contains around 50 ingredients including refined flour, conditioners, MSG, refined sugar and more? Me either! How can a bread so processed ever come close to being a real food?
Italian (white) Bread: Enriched flour (wheat flour, barley malt, niacin, iron, thiamin mononitrate, riboflavin, folic acid), water, sugar, contains less than 2% of the following: soybean oil, fermented wheat flour, yeast, salt, wheat protein isolate, wheat gluten, dough conditioners (acetylated tartaric acid esters of mono- and diglycerides, ammonium sulfate, calcium sulfate, ascorbic acid, azodicarbonamide, potassium iodate, amylase [enzymes]), sodium stearoyl-2-lactylate, lactic acid, sulfites, mineral oil.
Even the bread at Subway is toxic. Instead of using olive, sunflower, or peanut oil, they chose to use soybean oil.
