That Chemical In Your Subway Bread Is Also In Your Shoe Rubber and Exercise Mat
Subway, one of the world's biggest bread bakers, is about to remove a chemical from its breads that raised the ire of an influential health activist and food blogger.
The world's biggest sandwich chain says it's in the process of removing the chemical known as Azodiacarbonamide from its sandwich breads -- a chemical that Vani Hari, who runs the siteFoodBabe.com, says is commonly used to increase elasticity in everything from yoga mats to shoe rubber to synthetic leather. It's used for the same reason in bread, she says, as a dough conditioner.
Apparently Azodiacarbonamide is approved by USDA and FDA.You should ask yourself why and realize the government doesn't care about our health.
