A new study by The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) has just revealed that your favorite Subway topping – Subway chicken – only contains about 53% chicken!
CBC conducted a large study that examined chicken from McDonald’s, Wendy’s, A&W, and Canadian coffee chain Tim Hortons – most of the findings revealed that the chicken was 85% to 90% chicken. However Subway’s was only 53.6% CHICKEN! Subway chicken strips even score worse, at only 42.8% real chicken.
Researchers say that meat bought at a butcher should register at 100% however Subway have now admitted that they use a soy stabilizer with their chicken; however at the same time claiming that they only use 100% white meat chicken. They say: “Subway Canada cannot confirm the veracity of the results of the lab testing you had conducted. However, we are concerned by the alleged findings you cite with respect to the proportion of soy content. Our chicken strips and oven roasted chicken contain 1 percent or less of soy protein. We use this ingredient in these products as a means to help stabilize the texture and moisture. We will look into this again with our supplier to ensure that the chicken is meeting the high standard we set for all of our menu items and ingredients.” WHAT DO YOU THINK?
