Azodicarbonamide is chemical used in rubber mats, shoe soles and faux leather goods. This Azodicarbonamide chemical found in Subway bread loaves is to be removed soon. A food politics blogger constantly criticized the chain of supposedly healthy subs regarding a flour conditioner (contains Azodicarbonamide) it employed. Finally, Subway is ready to mend its ways in response to consumer demand.

We consume so much junk food (and even health food) that contains harmful ingredients. From additives to preservatives these ten thousand coloring and flavoring agents may cause untold damage to the human body. 

A similar case occurred recently with Subway which is famous for its so-called natural mouthwateringly good subs. A female named Vani Hari, who practised food blogging, had raised hell over the issue of the food chain using Azodiacarbonamide in its breads

This happens to be the selfsame chemical crap that gets utilized to increase the elastic limit of rubber mats, flip flops and faux leather goods. Vani Hari of FoodBabe.com said the suspect Azodiacarbonamide chemical was used as a conditioning agent for dough. 

Subway meanwhile has promised that it will make changes in the stuff that goes into its sandwiches. Although the Azodiacarbonamide chemical was approved of by the FDA, nevertheless just to satisfy its worthy clientele the famous chain will not be adding it to its recipes in the future. 

Subway is especially known for its nutritious and freshly baked bread. Even Michelle Obama, who is leading America’s fight against Obesity, often eats at Subway. 

Vani Hari, the food blogger who started the investigation in the first place, has praised Subway for taking prompt notice of the point of order she had raised.
