All prefers subway foods, especially the sandwiches. Yet, there are few, who know that a 17-year old boy Fred DeLuca started this business back in 1965 just to make some money to pay his tuition fees during the college days. To start the business he took a loan of $1,000 from his friend Peter Buck and made him the partner in his business. Doctors Associates Inc., which owns the company, gives assurance of serving fresh and healthy eatables. However, you may find it interesting that Fred and Peter, who owns the Doctors Associates Inc., is not a medical doctor. Therefore, there is no point in believing that the foods are prepared after consulting with doctors about their nutritional values. It is nothing wrong in saying that the food served by Subway is equally unhealthy like that of McDonalds or other companies.
While Subway promises healthy and nutritious foods, the reality is something different. The nine-grain whole wheat bread, which has the freshness of just baking, actually contains over 50 ingredients harmful for health. According to the reports, the nine-grain brain contains, conditioners, MSG, refined sugar, refined flour and other ingredients harmful for health.
The Italian white bread too is unhealthy and is found to contain enriched flour (folic acid, riboflavin, thiamin, mononiatrate, barley malth, iron, niacin and wheat flour), wheat gluten, water, sugar made from 2% soy oil, salt, fermented wheat flour, yeast, wheat protein isolate, sulfates, sodium stearoyl, mineral oil, lactic acid and dough conditioners (amylase, azodicarbonamide, potassium iodine, calcium sulfate, ascorbic acid, ammonium sulfate and tartaric acid esters of mono-and dyglycerides), wheat protein isolate, lactic acid, sodium stearoyl-2-lactylate, mineral oil and sulfates.
Subway has opted for soybean instead of using sunflower oil, peanut oil or olive oil, which means that their breads contain toxins. The pickles and peppers, which look quite natural and fresh, are also full of additives like the breads. Olives are often combined with additives like ferrous gluconate for retaining their black look. So, before you buy anything from Subway next time, you should take a note of the points mentioned here and decide.
