FRESH: DNA Tests Reveal Subway’s Chicken Sandwiches Are Just Half Chicken

Subway’s prides themselves on serving the ‘freshest’ ingredients. The main question is, what exactly are in the ingredients?

According to DNA tests conducted by Trent University and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC), Subway’s chicken fillets, found in their Oven Roasted Chicken sandwich, had just 53.6% chicken in it, while their sumptuous strips, found in their delicious Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki sandwich, contained only 42.8% chicken.

In case you’re wondering, the remainder of the ‘chicken’ substance is made from soy.

Subway’s Canada responded to the findings with the following statement.

“SUBWAY Canada cannot confirm the veracity of the results of the lab testing you had conducted,” the company said, adding, “Our chicken strips and oven roasted chicken contain 1% or less of soy protein. We use this ingredient in these products as a means to help stabilize the texture and moisture. All of our chicken items are made from 100% white meat chicken which is marinated, oven roasted and grilled.”

Related: CBC and Trent also tested the chicken from fast food chains, including A&W, McDonald’s, Tim Horton’s and Wendy’s — most of which contained 80-90% chicken.

Here’s a video of the results below.

Stop eating fast food.

    If this is true it’s very scary. If Subway can make something look like chicken that is half soy, are other fast food chains doing the same? Could be a contributing factor to the decline in testosterone around the world.

        Well, it’s better that others tested higher, but still disturbing that you can even make a chicken patty that is half soy still look like chicken. How can you trust what you are eating?

    Yeah, and Coca Cola is made from 100% real corn. It’s just been refined down to HFCS and had a bunch of other shit added to it.

    Went to Arby’s for first time in years. Got a plain beef sandwich. On first bite I gagged the shit out of my mouth. Fucking disgusting. The texture felt like fat rubber literally.

      I also had the same experience, expensive too. They also did away with a favorite of mine, their ham and Swiss cheese sandwich. It’s only available in kid size.

        They did away with ham and Swiss ? I like the turkey swiss. The turkey doesn’t seem fake. Maybe I’m fooling myself.

          The ham and Swiss is only available in small kid size now. I really liked it normal sized with their horsey sauce!

    We read that and then wonder why this is going on. I’m not saying they are directly related but do you really know what you are eating? I agree. Stop eating fast food. Hmm:

    Just remember its based on chicken DNA, which can be any part of the chicken where its DNA can be found. I’ll leave the rest to your imagination.
