Testing found that chicken in Subway subs can contain as little as 50% chicken DNA

Have a half-chicken sub (not half a chicken sub)…

If you’re one of many Canadians who opt for chicken sandwiches at your favourite fast food restaurant, you may find the results of a CBC Marketplace investigation into what’s in the meat a little hard to swallow.

A DNA analysis of the poultry in several popular grilled chicken sandwiches and wraps found at least one fast food restaurant isn’t serving up nearly as much of the key ingredient as people may think.

In the case of two popular Subway sandwiches, the chicken was found to contain only about half chicken DNA.


The majority of the remaining DNA? Soy

lent green is people! 😉
