Subway Removing Shoe & Yoga Mat Chemical From Their Bread! Why Was It There To Begin With??

This is FAB news!

We sometimes wonder how companies even decide to put half the chemicals they do into their products. Who is the first one to try it? Why would you even try it??

It's all in the name of saving money, of course!

Well the good news is that Subway has decided to REMOVE azodicarbonamide from their breads — and to leave it for things like yoga mats and shoe soles instead!

Here's what they said:

"We are already in the process of removing azodicarbonamide as part of our bread improvement efforts despite the fact that it is (a) USDA and FDA approved ingredient. The complete conversion to have this product out of the bread will be done soon."

Just because it's USDA and FDA approved doesn't mean it's necessary OR a good thing to have!

Usually, the chemical is used to strengthen the dough. It's been poorly tested and regulated, though, and therein lies the problem.

That and the fact that you can derive urethane from it (a recognized carcinogen), and semicarbazide (which poses "a negligible risk to humans"). Semicarbazide was even found to cause cancers of the lung and blood vessels in mice according to CSPI.

The FDA says that the additive isn't allowed to blow past the .0045% by weight of the flour when used as a 'dough conditioner,' which is one of the grossest terms ever. Other food joints like McDonald's, Starbucks and Arby's use the chemical too — and your grocery store isn't exempt either!

Once again, it seems like Europe has its shizz together better than us: the chemical is not legally allowed to be used as a dough improver in the European Union, according to the European Food Safety Authority! Even Australian banned it!

Better safe than sorry! Just remove it, everyone!

    Re: sc – Not true, for years I was on an experimental drug that was legal in Canada and Europe and the FDA never did approve it. Had to switch to another med.

    My neighbour is working part time and averaging $9000 a month. I'm a single mum and just got my first paycheck for $6546! I still can't believe it. I tried it out cause I got really desperate and now I couldn't be happier. Heres what I do, YellWork.Com

    Re: teeter totter – There wasn't enough $$ behind that drug. Look at pubmed and the success rates of many of the designer meds they approve. It's truly a joke. Anyway, don't believe me then put your faith in them and eat up. gobble gobble.
