A food science story is rapidly going viral, claiming that Subway’s Oven-Roasted Chicken is only 50% chicken, with the rest being soy (that’s almost certainly GMO soy). Covered in CBC News out of Canada, the story cites researcher Matt Harnden at Trent University’s Wildlife Forensic DNA Laboratory.
The lab says it test “meat” from five major fast food restaurants as follows:
– McDonald’s Country Chicken – Grilled
– Wendy’s Grilled Chicken Sandwich
– A&W Chicken Grill Deluxe
– Tim Hortons Chipotle Chicken Grilled Wrap
– Subway Oven Roasted Chicken Sandwich
– Subway Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki (chicken strips)
According to the CBC News story, most of the tests showed the meats to be nearly 100% real meat (they were all tested without breading or condiments).
But Subway’s “meats” painted a different picture, reports CBC News:
Those results were averaged: the oven roasted chicken scored 53.6 per cent chicken DNA, and the chicken strips were found to have just 42.8 per cent chicken DNA. The majority of the remaining DNA? Soy.
Subway says it’s not true but hasn’t produced any tests to back up their claim
Subway vehemently disagrees with the test results and says its supplier is using only 100% real chicken. But to my knowledge, Subway hasn’t produced any in-house DNA test logs on their own chicken meat to contradict the news.
Clearly, somebody is lying. But who?
