I always loved the subway chicken breast foot long. Ordering it without the cookies and drinks thinking that it was the healthiest meal ever that will help get me lean and shredded. What can go wrong with bread, vegetables (cucumber, tomato, and olive) and chicken breast?
Only until one day, where I got the frozen chicken breast that was taken out fresh from freezer. They had to defrost it in the oven and it looks the same white chicken and everything, until I chew on it. Some of the part wasn’t normal, it was chewy, it feels like I just put some eraser into my mouth. I knew that something was not right. So here is my research for the FRESH SUBWAY.
First of all, SUBWAY EAT FRESH according to SUBWAY is define as the sandwich is made fresh on the spot and that doesn’t mean the ingredient is fresh.
In its defence, Subway says by ‘fresh’ it means that the sandwiches are freshly made in front of customer, not that the ingredients are fresh. It also says that, where possible, it sources meat from the UK. Not that its meat is 100 per cent meat: Subway told me its ham contains pork rear-leg meat, water, salt, stabilisers, dextrose (sugar), lactose, smoke flavouring, preservative and antioxidant. What goes into the flavouring, it did not divulge.
I will only be touching on the chicken breast for this post, but subway is still a fastfood chain stall so we cant really expect much. Here it goes …
CHICKEN BREAST PATTY
Chicken breast with rib meat, water, seasoning (corn syrup solids, vinegar
powder [maltodextrin, modified corn starch and tapioca starch, dried vinegar], brown sugar, salt, dextrose, garlic powder, onion powder, chicken type flavor [hydrolyzed corn gluten, autolyzed yeast extract, thiamine hydrochloride, disodium inosinate and disodium guanylate]), sodium phosphates.
Your chicken breast is not really your chicken. It is a mixture of corn syrup, maltodextrin, corn starch, tapioca all the bad carbohydrates. And some corn gluten and your chicken taste comes from chicken type flavor. All I can say is what did I just ate!?
Anyway it’s a fast food chain, don’t be cheated by the eat fresh and thinking that eating subway is healthy.
