Subway Denies Report That Its Rooster Is Solely About 54 % Meat


Subway says its rooster is the true deal, regardless of some claims to the contrary

The chain’s rooster meat accommodates only about half real chicken DNA, in line with the outcomes of an investigation commissioned by Canada’s CBC Information. The remainder is usually soy, the CBC says.

It’s typically reported that quick meals rooster has added ingredients. However Subway says the CBC’s claims are false, at the very least regarding its rooster served in each the U.S. and Canada.

“The accusations made… concerning the content material of our rooster are completely false and deceptive,” a Subway spokesman advised HuffPost in an announcement. “Our rooster is 100% chicken with seasonings, marinated and delivered to our shops as a completed, cooked product… We have no idea how [CBC News] produced such unreliable and factually incorrect knowledge, however we’re insisting on a full retraction.”

The news report consists of outcomes from DNA exams of rooster at numerous fast-food eating places. McDonald’s and Wendy’s had been discovered to have round 85 p.c rooster DNA of their merchandise. Subway’s outcomes had been dramatically lower: Its oven roasted rooster was discovered to have 53.6 p.c rooster DNA, and its rooster strips got here out to simply 42.eight p.c.

Quick-food rooster typically accommodates fillers like soy and water to maximize value and taste, and should even comprise different rooster elements like fat or blood vessels, in line with NPR. Certainly, Subway’s ingredients list mentions add-ins like water, soy protein and “rooster taste” along with rooster breast. Nonetheless, Subway Canada advised CBS that the soy protein doesn’t add as much as more than 1 percent of the full product.
