Truth be told, when I go to Subway I always get the Italian B.M.T or I opt for the meatball sandwich. I’m a pretty simple guy. However, I do always see the suspect chicken strips and chicken breast filet in the little black boxes waiting on the microwave.
If you’ve ever seen them make a Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki sandwich then you’ve seen them warm up the tray of chicken in the microwave and then plop it on the sandwich. (Maybe it’s the other way around but I’m not a sandwich artist.)
Well, according to a Canadian research group, biopsies of the chicken at Subway (and other fast food restaurants) were taken and DNA tested.
How weird is to think that chicken has DNA too.
The results came back with the chicken from Subway coming in at about 43% real chicken and the rest was soy. That’s a blockbuster. I guess it doesn’t really surprise me when I look back at the price and the way it’s prepared but Subway has always touted it’s freshness and if it’s not full chicken but rather a mix of chicken and soy I don’t know if I qualify that as fresh.
This won’t keep me from going to Subway but it will keep me from ordering a chicken sandwich of any kind at Subway. Oh yeah, the Tuna sandwich is pretty spectacular too. (In case you can’t eat meat today.)
