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.
