Think Fresh, with 53% chicken DNA gotta make you wonder what the rest is. According tot he test the remaining chicken "product" is soy protein.


Subway was among five fast-food restaurants whose chicken the Canadian Broadcast Corporation had tested.

The results showed the Oven Roasted Chicken patties averaged 53.6 percent chicken DNA while the Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki strips came in at 42.8 percent.


Subway Canada cannot confirm the tests. They contend that there is a very small % of soy protein to stabilize the chicken. According to the story McDonalds and Wendy's chicky is in the 80%'s.


“SUBWAY Canada cannot confirm the veracity of the results of the lab testing you had conducted. However, we are concerned by the alleged findings you cite with respect to the proportion of soy content. Our chicken strips and oven roasted chicken contain 1% or less of soy protein. We use this ingredient in these products as a means to help stabilize the texture and moisture. All of our chicken items are made from 100% white meat chicken which is marinated, oven roasted and grilled. We tested our chicken products recently for nutritional and quality attributes and found it met our food quality standards. We will look into this again with our supplier to ensure that the chicken is meeting the high standard we set for all of our menu items and ingredients.”

In case you wondered what the rest of the patties and chicken strips are made of: It’s soy.

In general.... I typically like your threads but this one is making me think you are running out of ideas. Is it THAT important to create a constant stream of threads? (That is meant as constructive criticism.... I really do enjoy most of your threads).

Specific to this one.... I'm not sure what the story here is exactly....? As far as I'm concerned fast food is something along the lines of cigarettes. With all of the information out there.... I refuse to believe that the majority of people think of it as healthy. I also refuse to believe that most people think that a chicken (or whatever) sandwich is made purely of chicken.

Soy? Why not? I'm not sure I see the harm.

Just my two cents anyway.

Sounds like it's made wherever the other fast food joints get their chicken sandwich and chicken fingers and etc material from.

I call all it "Chicken Foam".

I have a vague recollection of McDonald's cheering that their chicken McNuggets were, "Now made with chicken!"
(I believe emu is what they were made of prior).

I was probably one of the only not surprised, nor disgusted, by the "pink slime" bust.

When you think about it, all meat and meat-like products are kinda gross in their own way. It comes down to what you learned to think is an acceptable cut of meat and what isn't. It's an emotional reaction moreso than a nutritional one.

No one in their right mind would think any fast food meat is 100% authentic from that animal.

Bring on the chicken foam and pink slime! nom nom

I found it odd that Subway claims 1% added protien product to the chicken, and a DNA test came up with 47% added soy protein. If this story is accurate, this is a huge savings to Subway. I can see a class action suit.

It isn't my usual subject matter, and it's ok if you don't like it, I found it telling of the general condition of our food supply.

You know what? You are completely correct.
Nobody had a gun to my head forcing me into this thread.

I extend an apology to the OP.

Keep on Truckin' indeed.

Thank you,

I wonder if Canada has an FDA type of org that will have their big fat ticket book out? Someone somewhere (supplier?) is going to be in deep doo doo and/or be a scapegoat.

None needed, I'm glad we can like and not like each other threads. It is always interesting to see how people look at problems just like this one with Subway and their 1/2 chicken product.

That's not soy...




If any of you don't get the reference, it's from Fried Green Tomatoes. If you've seen it, you'll catch my drift.

Every time I read one of these stories, it makes me very glad I have taken the responsibility to grow my own food. I just butchered a fat rooster. And even though its pretty gross to do it, I thank my lucky stars for having the property to grow my own chickens, goats, turkeys, rabbits and a huge garden and lots of fruit trees. Goats for milk, butter and cheese. Chickens for eggs and freezer.

I dont trust even grocery store food anymore and sooner or later, we are all going to struggle to find "clean food".

From your link;

The sandwich chain refuted the results of the DNA test in a released statement:
Our chicken strips and oven roasted chicken contain 1% or less of soy protein. All of our chicken items are made from 100% white meat chicken
A slight contradiction, opps.

Sounds like good eating. We had a rooster that would chase every bird that landed on his grass away. He was stupid busy all day.

i remarked to my wife the other day that I have no idea how Subway's are still around. They are run down dumps that employ grimey people with more than questionable hygeine.

I get creeped out just walking in one.
