Subway Sandwich

Story at-a-glance -

  • In the US, Subway uses azodicarbonamide in a number of their breads – but it does not use the chemical in its products sold elsewhere, like the UK, EU, or Australia.
  • Food blogger Vani Hari, known as Food Babe, launched a petition to remove azodicarbonamide from Subway sandwich bread earlier this month
  • Subway released a statement saying they are in the process of removing azodicarbonamide from its bread sold in US stores
  • Azodicarbonamide is used as a dough conditioner in commercial baking; it’s also used in yoga mats, shoe rubber, and other materials, like synthetic leather
  • There is concern that azodicarbonamide might cause chronic diseases including cancer and, possibly, asthma and allergies
  • Azodicarbonamide is only one chemical ingredient in Subway sandwiches; even after this is removed, many more will still remain
