So, That Yoga-Mat Chemical Is In A Lot More Products Than Just Subway Bread

Subway came under fire recently when it was revealed that the fast food chain was using “a bleaching agent” in its bread called azodicarbonamide, which is found in yoga-mats and flip flops. Mmm! If you’ll recall in Burnsy’s original post, some rando troll/aspiring conspiracy theorist took it upon himself to personally respond the following to every angry consumer leaving furious comments on Subway’s Facebook page:

As it turns out, conspiracy homeboy was not wrong, because a new report released by the Environmental Working Group has found that azodicarbonamide has been found in nearly five hundred popular supermarket bread products. The full list is way too lengthy to print here, so here’s just a sampling:

Wonder light wheat bread
Martin’s potato rolls
Pillsbury dinner rolls and Toaster Strudel pastries
Sun-Maid raisin bread
IHOP French toast breakfast sandwiches
Little Debbie Honey Buns
Mariano’s breads and rolls (42 varieties)
Nature’s Own breads (18 varieties)
Sara Lee breads and buns (19 varieties)
Smucker’s Uncrustables PB&J sandwiches
Sunbeam enriched bread
Healthy Life whole wheat with flaxseed bread


So, the takeaway here is that unless you grow and mill your own grains and make your own bread and basically be an Amish person, you’re going to eat rubber or drink cancer and f*ck up the glorious temple that is your body somehow. As far as I’m concerned, just hand me a bottle of bourbon and a yoga-mat and let’s be done with it.
