Subway to remove chemical in bread found in yoga mats

Subway restaurants will remove a chemical in their bread that’s also found in yoga mats.

The chemical is used to increase elasticity in other products like shoe rubber and synthetic leather.

A spokesperson for Subway says the chemical is approved by the USDA and the FDA for use in foods.

However, it’s banned in the UK, Europe and Australia.

A food blogger launched a campaign against Subway to remove the chemical from its bread.

    The question isn’t so much how a USDA and FDA approved ingredient is in the bread, the question is why is a food ingredient in the yoga mat?
    It goes to explain why people leave yoga hungry…..

    Better yet, why is a Yoga Ingredient in our food?

    The USDA and FDA should reconsider its list of approved ingredients.

    I wonder how many other little secrets are out there we don't know about. Hopefully this food blogger will dig up some more things we should know about.
