Subway’s Health Claims are Bologna

Subway's Health Claims are Bologna

Subway has been generating weight-loss and nutrition campaigns for more than a decade—since the days of Jared. But a new PCRM report reveals that Subway’s “Eat Fresh” campaign is a pile of bologna.

From its partnerships with top U.S. Olympians and Michelle Obama to its work with the American Heart Association, Subway has been touting itself as the key to staying fit. But a closer look at the menu and ingredients reveals just the opposite.

In February, Subway promoted its menu as heart-healthy and urged customers to choose meals with an American Heart Association designation. One of these options, the Double Chicken Chopped Salad, actually contains more cholesterol than a Big Mac! Customers who order this meal likely have no idea that it is far from heart-healthy and could actually raise their cholesterol levels. Excess cholesterol in the blood binds to artery walls and forms the plaque that leads to heart disease.

The chain’s popular Italian B.M.T. is also a bad choice. It contains cancer-causing processed meats and a shocking 138 ingredients. By reviewing Subway’s health claims and menu items, PCRM’s report helps consumers understand the truth about what they’re ordering as they’re herded through the Subway line.
