Canadian investigators for CBC by DNA testing, recently found Subway’s oven-roasted chicken to be only 53.6% actual chicken. The rest was made up of soy fillers. Their chicken strips turned out to contain even less–at 42.8%.
Other popular fast-food outlets–including McDonald’s, Wendy’s, A&W, and Tim Horton’s, scored in the mid to high eighty percent range.
Subway spokesperson, Kevin Kane, withheld comment, pending further investigation.
Should this be a big deal? For decades, mystery meats have been universally compared to chicken. “Don’t worry about it. Soy protein’s good–tastes like chicken.”
