Will Subway bread still be as good after they remove a chemical used to make shoe rubber from ingredient list?
Subway announced this week that they would stop making really awesome bread. Well, if by 'awesome,' you mean full of the same chemical that's used to make rubber shoe soles and yoga mats, then yeah, no more awesome bread for you.
The chemical, called azodicarbonamide, isn't approved for human consumption in Europe or Australia, and is absent from Subway's bread recipes in those markets. Probably because it's used to make rubber. Did we mention that?
Although Subway claims the removal of azodicarbonamide from American bread was already underway, the announcement only happened after a petition to do so was started by activist Vani Hari and circulated around the internet. But while Subway has promised to remove the stuff from American bread, it hasn't mentioned when. So, if Subway's got the flavor you crave, you might still have some time to insert an azodicarbonamide foot-long into your face hole before the bread gets turned into some shitty, "healthier, non-rubberizing option." Score!
