Is Subway OK?

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
Ok, so I should totally know this after being pregnant twice... but is Subway ok to eat? I really want a BIG veggie sub from them (no idea why but this is the only thing that sounds appetizing) no meat or anything... is that ok to eat?

It should be if they have fresh gloves on.

Oh, and you can get deli meat, just have it toasted/heated.

My partner ate one of those Seafood Delight sandwiches on Whole Wheat nearly every day during her third trimester. Our little guy was born perfectly healthy, and he doesn't even look like Jared!

I certainly hope so. We had catered Subway for lunch at a training yesterday and I ate two six-inchers.

I LOVE subway veggie subs! Was craving one for lunch today! Sure, it's fine. I stay away from their deli meats anyway because they are nasty. But I'll prob eat at least one veggie sub a week during this pregnancy.

You'll be fine woman!!

The ONLY thing that would concern me about subway's deli meat is the nitrates/nitrites in the meat....but if you're doing a veggie sub then there is no meat! I would still eat their deli meat occasionally even with the nitrites/nitrates as well.

Their bread contains Azodicarbonamide. It’s a yellow to orange-red crystalline powdered chemical, C2H4O2N4. Its use in food products is banned in most parts of Europe/UK and in Singapore you can enjoy a hefty $450,000 fine if caught using it. The FDA allows it b/c there is currently no research on it.

Their meats also contain nitrates/nitrites.

If you're concerned about listeria, just have them nuke the sub.

Do you know if it is in ALL of their breads?

Holy cow I never heard of that before. I don't think I'll be able to eat their bread now w/o thinking of this!! You hate to be ignorant about things...but man! LOL! Sometimes I sure do love me some subway! But eww...chemicals? Pretty darn gross!!!!! *gag*

I think it's in most available breads, whether from a restaurant or in the store. Because they use it to speed up the time of processing/aging flour.

I found a couple options at Target/Walmart that didn't have it, but then they had other things like bromate and HFCS. I actually ended up buying my bread from great harvest b/c I couldn't find anything at our stores.

It sucks I know. When I learned about pink slime in beef I freaked out big time. But as in all things...I'm sure satisfying a pregnancy craving here and there is not going to kill us...I mean, we are inundated with thousands of other toxins daily.

of course, because time's money, and money's what it's all about.

/sarcasm.

good reason to bake your own bread.

I love homemade bread. Yum.

I've never seen that ingredient on a package of bread before. Is it listed as anything else??? That is SO gross!

Guys, I just looked at subway's website - it appears that nasty chemical is NOT in the honey oat bread - just FYI for anyone craving a veggie sandwich. That happens to be my fave bread there anyway!

Here is the link so you can check it out

Edited to say nevermind, it is.

Personally, Subway is NOT okay. It has nothing to do with chemical laden bread, lunchmeat or the creepy guy behind the counter who just picked his nose with his glove on. It's pure snobbery on my part. As a native of Philadelphia, Subway is not the place to get real hoagies and they don't taste a bit like the real thing. Anyway, I ate hoagies my entire pregnancy with Ds. They were plain old cold hoagies (as the idea of heating a good hoagie makes me die a little bit inside) and DS was fine. Your chances of listeriosis are pretty low. I would be concerned with the nitrites and the chemicals.

Ya, but for those of us in Bethel, Alaska, Subway is about it.

I have a similar reaction when I hear of people eating farmed salmon, so I totally get it.

yeah, I was going to say, if you look close the first ingredient is their wheat bread, which does have it.
