What's in Your Subway Sandwich? Chain Removes Chemical From Bread

Posted:
SIOUX CITY, IA -

A new release about a chemical used at Subway may have you thinking twice about the sandwiches you were getting from that chain.

Subway has announced it will no longer use a food additive in their bred called Azodcarbonamide, commonly found in shoe leather and yoga mats.

The decision comes after Foodbabe.com health blogger Vani Hari petitioned to have the flour bleaching agent removed from Subway sandwiches.

The substance has been linked globally to several health problems, including Asthma and allergies.

Subway says the transition to remove the product should be completed soon that includes at the eight Subways here throughout Siouxland.

If you have a story you want to tell or an  incident you think needs to be investigated, our reporter Beairshelle Edmé wants to hear about it.
