One of the biggest concerns Our Daily Green has about processed foods is that our nation now consumes food stuff that didn't even exist 100 years ago. Our foods have been manipulated and fortified and turned into something that may not even resemble the original food. One of the biggest culprits in our diet is High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS).
... you're probably not in the habit of ordering a la carte bread loaves at Subway, but there’s a good chance you've eaten at least a few sandwiches built on this bread. The good news is that Subway actually delivers on the nine-grain promise. The bad news: Eight of those nine grains appear in miniscule amounts. If you look at a Subway ingredient statement, you'll find every grain except wheat listed at the bottom of the list, just beneath the qualifier "contains 2% or less." In fact, the primary ingredient in this bread is plain old white flour, and high-fructose corn syrup plays a more prominent role than any single whole grain. Essentially this is a white-wheat hybrid with trace amounts of other whole grains like oats, barley, and rye.
