Subway Chicken Only Contains 50 Percent Real Chicken

Sorry Subway chicken sandwich lovers... you're not really getting what you think you're paying for. DNA tests show that the company's oven-roasted chicken patties only contain 50% chicken.

The CBC Marketplace ran an analysis on a variety of chicken sandwiches sold at fast food restaurant chains, including McDonald's, Wendy's and Subway.

McDonald's patties contained 85% chicken, Wendy's had 86% chicken... and Subway only 54% chicken.

What's the rest of a Subway chicken patty made out of? Mostly soy, according to the CBC.

The Business Insider reached out to all three companies. They all deny any claims that the meat they use is anything but 100% chicken. "Our chicken strips and oven roasted chicken contain 1% or less of soy protein. We use this ingredient in these products as a means to help stabilize the texture and moisture," said the company in a statement.
