Do you eat SUBWAY and think that you’re eating healthy??? Unless you’re ordering a salad… you may want to RECONSIDER next time you get a sub. This is from my friend who has a Master’s in nutrition and her take on Subway.
“At the top of the list of things I transition my clients out of using, white flour would make the top 5. You’ll also see it listed as “bleached flour”, “enriched flour”, “organic unbleached seminola”, “wheat flour” and they ALL mean WHITE FLOUR and should be avoided. If it doesn’t say the word WHOLE in the ingredients list IT IS NOT A WHOLE GRAIN. It can say Whole Grain or Whole Wheat on the front of the package but if it doesn’t say WHOLE in the ingredient list then it is white flour. Carbs are the main source of fuel for your body- they are not the enemy- the refined carbs are your enemy- white flour, white sugar, white rice and white pasta.
Here is what is REALLY in Subway’s 9 Grain Bread: Enriched wheat flour (wheat flour, barley malt, niacin, iron, thiamin mononitrate, riboflavin, folic acid) (anytime a flour is enriched, it means that the food manufacturer has stripped the flour of nearly all the vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, so they are legally bound to introduce back in the synthetic vitamins) , water, yeast (source of MSG, and a common allergen), high fructose corn syrup (need I say more? a cause of blood sugar imbalances and weight gain), wheat gluten, contains 2% or less of the following: oat fiber, soybean oil (Genetically Modified), salt, wheat bran, rolled wheat, rye nuggets, dough conditioners (DATEM, sodium stearoyl lactylate), yeast nutrients (calcium sulfate, ammonium sulfate), degermed yellow corn meal, rolled oats, rye flakes, caramel color (contains cancer-causing nitrates, and is genetically modified), triticale flakes, parboiled brown rice, refinery syrup, honey, barley flakes, flaxseed, millet, sorghum flour, azodiacarbonamide (Use of azodicarbonamide as a food additive is banned in Australia and in Europe. In Singapore, the use of azodicarbonamide can result in up to 15 YEARS IMPRISONMENT and a FINE of $450,000), natural flavor (another source of MSG) (maltodextrin, natural flavor, silicon dioxide, lactic acid).
Subway makes their bread LOOK brown and “whole grain” from CARAMEL COLORING and AMMONIUM SULFATE which is a FERTILIZER. The 9 grains are in there in the less than 2% or less ingredients.
Look for the word “whole” on the back label and I bet your family will start to feel better and look a lot less puffy around the middle.”
