Subway Chicken Only Contains 50% Meat!

Have you ever wondered about the content of your sandwich at Subway? According to laboratory tests, the "chicken" of the Subway may contain only 50% chicken. Very disturbing, is not it? But what else does it contain?

Subway chicken, not really chicken?

According to tests conducted at Trent University in Canada, Subway's chicken strips and roast chicken contain only 43% to 54% chicken DNA, the rest is soy and other ingredients.

Subway denies the charges while admitting she is concerned about the alleged discoveries. According to Subway, its chicken strips and roast chicken contain less than 1% soy protein.

Popular chicken sandwiches from Wendy's, McDonalds and other fast food have also been included in the tests. All, with the exception of Subway, have been tested as "essentially" chicken, ranging from 85 to 90% chicken DNA.

If only half, or less, of Subway chicken is real chicken, what's the rest? It turns out that the rest is a very long list of ingredients, the majority of which is soy protein. John Coupland, president of the Institute of Food Technologists, said it's a surprisingly large amount of soy, and that's a lot for something supposed to be a real piece of chicken.

On average, fastfood chicken has about a quarter less protein than home-cooked chicken breast, because of water infusions and toppings, and contains up to eight times more sodium.

In addition, even if you do not expect chicken to be a source of carbohydrates, fast food chicken like Subway contains surprisingly high amounts of starches and refined sugars.

Soy protein linked to health problems

According to the results, there are several reasons to worry. Not only are you scammed, but you pay for chicken that turns out to be 50% soy, which is dangerous for your health, even if you are not allergic to soy.

Unfermented soy foods contain anti-nutritional elements such as toxoids, phytates, protease inhibitors, oxalates, goitrogens and estrogens, some of which interfere with the enzymes you need to digest proteins. .

While a small amount of these anti-nutrients would probably not be a problem, consuming a lot of soy is dangerous for your health.

According to Dr. Kaayla Daniel, author of The Whole Soy Story, thousands of studies link unfermented soybeans to a wide range of health problems, including: malnutrition, kidney stones, breast cancer, reproductive disorders, malnutrition immune system, danger during pregnancy and lactation, infantile abnormalities, heart disease, cognitive decline, digestive disorders, food allergies, brain damage, infertility, and thyroid dysfunction.

Genetically modified soy

Worse still, the vast majority of soybeans grown in the United States are genetically engineered to resist herbicides such as Monsanto's Roundup, which contains a carcinogen, glyphosate. The latter is the active ingredient in Roundup and other pesticides. Roundup is the most widely used agricultural chemical in the world. The first glyphosate-tolerant soybeans were introduced in the United States in 1994. In 2015, 83% of the soybeans grown in the world were genetically modified soybeans and in the United States more than 90% of the soybeans grown are genetically engineered. changed.

Less than 1% is organic, the remaining 9% being conventionally grown, which implies the use of herbicides such as Roundup. Contamination with glyphosate is in itself a major reason for avoiding foods containing soy protein. And if the Subway chicken really contains as much soy as the Canadian test suggests, that would be an important reason to avoid it as well. Remember that less than 1% of soy is organic and free of pesticides.

In March 2015, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), a research organization of the World Health Organization (WHO), reclassified glyphosate as a "probable carcinogen to humans". Researcher and consultant Anthony Samsel also reported finding evidence that Monsanto knew that glyphosate promotes cancer as early as 1981.

Based on IARC's determination, the California Agency for Environmental Hazards (OEHHA) has stated that glyphosate is a carcinogen according to Proposition 65 and requires all products containing glyphosate to carry a cancer warning. Monsanto tried to overturn the OEHHA's decision, and a judge of the Fresno County Superior Court ruled against the decision.
