As many of you have read or heard in recent headlines, popular sandwich chain, Subway, has been under fire for including a chemical foaming agent used to make yoga mats (called azodicarbonamide or ADA) in their breads. At first, Subway defended its practices by stating that this chemical helped maintain the bread's texture and shape. Concern for their profit margin however, prompted them to issue recent statements that they will soon remove the chemical from their foods. Is this too little, too late for Subway's PR staff? How many foods out there contain ADA? And just how dangerous is this ADA chemical to humans?
