But how are we expected to "eat fresh" without it?

Well, I've always thought their bread was poor in comparison to Jimmy John's or Quiznos for some reason...maybe this explains it...or not.

Subway announced this week that eventually it will stop using azodicarbonamide — a chemical used in yoga mats and shoe rubber — as an ingredient in its bread.

But representatives for Subway, which apparently does not use the chemical in its European or Australian markets, would not say when the company would actually effect the changes.

On the other hand, "Five dollar yoga mat" does not have the same ring, nor does it make teenagers giggle.

On the other hand, those mouth-watering treats biurea, semicarbazide, and urethane are all calorie-free.

The argument that it's used in yoga mats is a cheap trick--sodium chloride is sprinkled on roadways, too. More important is the fact that azodicarbonimide is harmful (asthma and other respiratory ailments) and banned in the EU and Singapore.

Oh my god. I've been saying for years that the bread in Subway smells like plastic. (I cannot eat there because the small that pervades every store is so nasty). I had no idea that it IS, actually, plastic. So disgusting!
