Why do companies always have to dump so much sugar into products? Reply July 15, 2019 at 12:39 pm Chicken isn’t a element it cant be 100% real or 80% real Reply July 15, 2019 at 12:43 pm Where exactly did you get these supposed “customers” Reply July 15, 2019 at 12:52 pm •Gets chicken•Tries to sell it•Sells nothing•Puts not chicken in chicken •Sells 20 millions 📈STONKS Reply July 15, 2019 at 1:10 pm It's pure and simple.

Reply July 16, 2019 at 7:37 pm 35 years in the meat industry from processing plants to retail. Seen it all!! Their is a simple solution though, don't eat at fast food places and cook at home. Its not rocket science. Reply July 17, 2019 at 3:51 am No Chick-fil-A? Reply July 17, 2019 at 4:00 am Come on DNA testing what don't they get Reply July 17, 2019 at 4:00 am Wood pulp Reply July 17, 2019 at 5:39 am lol eat fresh there is nothing fresh at subway as far as meats they are all packaged meats you do get fresh at first with their tomatoes and cucumbers but again dates are changed every two days then thrown out on the 3rd day the lettuce is packaged just like everything else is bread are frozen dough Reply July 17, 2019 at 7:57 am I had a bite taken out of my chicken nugget from Wendy's let's just say the place went out of business when we told the police Reply July 18, 2019 at 6:13 am I work at subway, i always judge people who get the 'chicken patty'. I try to ask em if they want the strips or rotisserie chicken Reply July 18, 2019 at 1:40 pm accept that when I buy chicken nuggets I see it as eating savory cookies. Its a snack that's fun to eat with not much nutrition if any. Reply July 18, 2019 at 9:18 pm More sensationalism from the Great White North! Reply July 19, 2019 at 6:59 am MCDONALDS!!!!! "Chicken burger healther option less sodium no bad stuff in it" "If we eat bad food it's better we eat chicken right?" WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Reply July 19, 2019 at 9:35 am I don't know if this is a Canadian thing (I'm from the U.S.), but this 'test' took WAY too long to get to the conclusions. It's like they were trying to get people all worked up over the issue rather than just passing along information. I mean, 22 minutes to essentially tell us that Subway's chicken is half soy protein and that fast food is really salty? Seems like they used alot of filler in this story 🙂 This kind of media definitely has influence. It would be interesting to know how it affected the sales of chicken sandwiches. Reply July 19, 2019 at 11:35 am How do you even think few pieces of chicken fried by a chef for this purpose would be same with commercially made chickens made for thousands of burgers Reply July 19, 2019 at 1:48 pm Chick-fil-A Reply July 19, 2019 at 9:14 pm Sad to see how lazy weve become….we dont give ourselves 10 mins to make ourselves something to eat…because were too busy driving or walking ourselves to a restaurant or fast food place to buy something to eat….I dont know which one is worse the processed food we buy or eat…..or our lazyness Reply July 19, 2019 at 9:38 pm The chef on this video needs to stop eating all his dishes….that man is as big as the stainless steel refrigerator🤣🤣🤭🤭….he needs to team up with the young man who eats subway….. Reply July 20, 2019 at 8:54 am cluckin bell has the best chicken you should try it Reply July 20, 2019 at 6:06 pm The only one I care about (because it's the only one I eat) is Chick-fil-a Reply July 21, 2019 at 12:17 am Yak the gurl touched the food with her hands and put on plate…..yaki…..wear gloves Reply July 21, 2019 at 11:31 am Wtf is Tim hortons Reply July 21, 2019 at 7:16 pm How could you not include chick-fil-a Reply July 22, 2019 at 8:25 pm Subway has some “splaining” to do !!!! Reply July 24, 2019 at 1:43 am I buy my chicken whole, 50 lbs at a time straight from Maple Lodge Farms…Takes me an hour to cut it up the way I want it and freezer bag it and that lasts me nearly 6 months (having a chicken meal twice a week)….If you eat more than 2 fast food meals a week. you need to take a cooking course…Or watch more youtube cooking vids and learn how to feed yourself. Reply July 24, 2019 at 6:58 am She looks like Tia and Tamera Reply July 24, 2019 at 9:41 am They needed at least one or two black person and Hispanic, also Asian person, to make it fair in judging the chicken Reply July 24, 2019 at 6:21 pm Even as a Professional Chef, I sometimes have cravings for Fast Food (probably from my childhood). Big Mac, Filet of Fish from McDonald's and the Spicy Crispy Chicken W/Cheese sandwich from Wendy's are my Go To choices. When I eat these things I'm very aware that it's probably not the healthiest thing for me to eat, but when I get Fast Food, I know this. Don't think that the grocery stores aren't doing the same. Those bags of loose chicken pieces that say "up to 15% broth added" are just the tip of the proverbial Iceberg. As a chef I've noticed the texture of most store bought chicken that's not "organic" has a rubbery texture these days and the taste is flat. The meat also doesn't really have a strong grain pattern either. I'm not an organic buyer, but chicken is the one exception. Reply July 24, 2019 at 9:47 pm Fresh means exactly that, fresh. Not 100% of anything Reply July 25, 2019 at 12:59 am Comparing freshly cooked chicken vs 45 min old chicken from a fast food place. Lol Reply July 25, 2019 at 6:39 am That Chef kept making faces when they ate his so he gave it away that it was his so basically they saw that and voted for him ..awkward …. Reply July 26, 2019 at 12:29 am What if you dont like chicken Reply July 26, 2019 at 12:54 am Read in the bible where it mentions meat Reply July 26, 2019 at 2:19 pm I don’t eat fast food period. It’s not that difficult to learn to cook. My go-to meal when I’m really hungry and pressed for time is a extra crunchy peanut butter sandwich (whole grain wheat). Reply July 27, 2019 at 8:56 am Cook at home and know what you putting in your mouth. Reply July 28, 2019 at 3:11 am I LOVE THIS CHANNEL! JUST DISCOVERED IT! You can’t go wrong with Wendy’s though! Reply July 28, 2019 at 3:26 am What a waste of brain cells this was. Reply July 28, 2019 at 3:00 pm “Two thirds of your daily limit of salt”. That nutritionist just lied. You can consume just over 10x that limit & it will have no effect on your health. It all goes in your pee. Reply July 28, 2019 at 4:14 pm If only everyone ate at home!!!!!!!!! Reply July 28, 2019 at 8:31 pm SUBWAY CHICKEN LOOKS MORE LIKE AN OMELETTE! Reply July 28, 2019 at 11:47 pm I decided to watch this video since I was walking to Subway to grab a chicken sandwich……… let's just say I'm super glad I did Reply July 29, 2019 at 2:32 am Lol.. eat fresh.. But what is it that people are eating fresh? Less than 50 percent chicken.. Reply July 29, 2019 at 6:19 am WHY can't this poor child use a fork yet? Do they ever eat home cooked food? Reply July 29, 2019 at 8:46 am MarketPlace is the only CBC program worth watching. Reply July 29, 2019 at 9:37 am This video is made by by junk food thugs———–Junk is goooooooooood!!! Reply July 29, 2019 at 4:37 pm stop saying you guys!! Reply July 29, 2019 at 8:51 pm Why didn't they cover KFC. pffft. Reply July 29, 2019 at 10:05 pm The blonde has a nose job Reply July 30, 2019 at 1:54 am This chicken is actually 60% rejected donkey meat from China. Full of ammonia and cadaverine. Reply July 30, 2019 at 6:05 am Subway chicken doesn't taste right–noticeable. Why didn't u score any others? Reply July 30, 2019 at 8:26 pm "We expected 100% kicken" Reply July 30, 2019 at 9:48 pm Just go vegan XD Reply July 30, 2019 at 10:27 pm daniel looks ill, please check his health Reply July 31, 2019 at 5:33 am https://youtu.be/ZuGHts631vM Reply July 31, 2019 at 6:53 am I really thought this video would be a wake up call to subway but 2 years later… still the same boring old quality. Reply August 1, 2019 at 3:56 am Well not surprised here; most fast food chicken is chicken + soy. If you wanna eat chicken buy it and cook it. Reply August 2, 2019 at 7:33 pm Handsome man Reply August 2, 2019 at 11:47 pm Not real chicken? That's clucked up. Is it just me or did the dude next the old lady have like no elbow room? Reply August 3, 2019 at 2:55 am anybody that actually cooks there own chicken properly should be able to tell how bad those other chicken pieces actually taste Reply August 3, 2019 at 3:34 am I rarely eat out. I buy all my food from Aldi. No GMO. No artificial flavors, grass fed, organic meat. I cook all my meals at home. Salads. Rarely eat meat. I was over weight after being a nurse for 15 years. I packed on the pounds. I lost over 40 lbs. just by not eating fast food and eating healthy food at home. No fad diets. I didn't even exercise. No pop. Reply August 3, 2019 at 5:43 am this video dropped fast food restaurant's market Reply August 3, 2019 at 1:37 pm Who on earth does NOT know that fast food products are just pure crap ?People who have been living in a cave for a century ?Thank you anyway for these documentaries which inform us.Comment from France where food is considered as hugely important since we eat 3 times a day. Reply August 5, 2019 at 1:38 am Subways "chicken" is something I NEVER eat. Reply August 8, 2019 at 7:05 pm For crying out loud! SODIUM IS PERFECTLY SAFE! Sodium Chloride (NaCl) IS FREAKING SALT! THESE POOR PEOPLE WERE TRICKED INTO THINKING SODIUM IS DANGEROUS! It's perfectly fine. Just like calories. Reply August 9, 2019 at 6:39 pm that kid has the most punchable face ever Reply August 9, 2019 at 7:45 pm Only one of the four knows how to hold a fork! Reply August 10, 2019 at 3:54 pm Watching this before eating McDonald’s chicken will be fun Reply August 10, 2019 at 5:19 pm Tim Horton’s is trash Reply August 11, 2019 at 5:16 am Fillers in meat can cause health issues – this is why Celiacs won’t eat anything that doesn’t say gluten-free, even when it’s something like grilled chicken, because who knows what’s inside. “Natural flavors” can include wheat. This is common in sausage, hot dog, bacons, lunch meat, and any other processed or flavored meats. Most people just don’t even realize because they don’t have the health issues and haven’t dug into what’s really inside their food.

It's made with processed ingredients? Whaat?! I'm shocked OMG 😱 seriously!!!! Reply August 14, 2019 at 10:11 am AGAIN: it's not "processed" ingredients that is the problem. Organic foods are processed. You need to process the grass-fed beef with the quinoa (or whatev") to get it into the bowl. SYNTHETIC INGREDIENTS, CHEMICALLY SYNTHESIZED and ARTIFICIALLY ENGINEERED are more appropriate words! How come I need to teach yanks/anglos to speak their own language!?!??????!!!!! Reply August 14, 2019 at 10:55 am 16:31 All approved as SAFE?? How about you call out the many GMOs loaded with BT toxin: canola, corn (maltodextrin, dextrose, citric acid etc.) and soy! Only missing is cottonseed oil, LOL! Reply August 14, 2019 at 11:05 am The end commercial = Whoa! And here I thought the hoity-toity canucks were supposed to be angels up there, what with their lib presitard, TruduQ! (You read that right!) And here they are, worst scammers than yanks. Tourist tax?? LOLOL! Tax on the sick?! Burn in hell! Reply August 14, 2019 at 11:27 am Chicken is full of pathogens go plant based and avoid all of this Reply August 14, 2019 at 1:34 pm Who else can only eat chickfila chicken when it comes to fast food?? Reply August 17, 2019 at 5:25 pm I walked away from fast food over 25 years ago, I'm better for it. Reply August 17, 2019 at 9:51 pm I was eating a baby's foot!! This isn't really news ☹️ Reply August 18, 2019 at 8:37 pm Why hasn't Subway been sued? Reply August 18, 2019 at 11:41 pm I would not give any of these Sandwiches to my DOG Reply August 19, 2019 at 2:04 am when I see these testing… videos I try not to click. I'm like gurl I dont even want to know. Reply August 20, 2019 at 6:26 pm buying fresh chicken is not all good too Reply August 23, 2019 at 7:54 pm Well considering Subway hired someone who they knew is a pedofile to represent their company, it doesn't surprise me that they're questionable in their representing of the food they sell Reply August 23, 2019 at 11:37 pm What a taste test. fresh cooked vs frozen cooked hours earlier, Chef almost lost. Chef vs chick-fil-a = chef loser! Reply August 24, 2019 at 8:02 pm I'd think you'd be able to LOOK at a piece of "chicken" and tell that there's crap mixed in and NOT "just chicken." Reply August 25, 2019 at 1:38 am What happen to Burger 👑 King? Reply August 26, 2019 at 12:58 am Then we'll celebrate meat substitutes made entirely of soy protein. Reply August 26, 2019 at 5:27 pm Subway's 'healthy" food means lower calories. Reply August 27, 2019 at 4:58 am Food industry really is atrocious and not at all as regulated as we think. Reply August 28, 2019 at 4:38 pm even 100% chicken now adays can be shite.they can cook the resedue of the bones.sinues and memrane ,cartilage the make it into a paste and can reconstruct a chicken from crap Reply August 29, 2019 at 3:23 am Probably Subway at Mickey D's are the worst I would say Reply August 29, 2019 at 9:48 am There's something in Subway bread that makes me very nauseous, Only the bread… and only Subway bread products. Obviously, I don't eat Subway anymore but just thought I'd pass it on after many trials to see which part of Subway's products was making me feel like puking. Now, just the thought of one of those foot long's is enough to turn my stomach. Anyone else found this? Reply August 29, 2019 at 4:13 pm At least don't undress them with bare hands (05:37). Reply August 30, 2019 at 2:29 am guy thinks subway chicken is higher quality than mcdonalds… thats laughable Reply Comment here Cancel reply Comment Name * Email * Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
