Subway is known for marketing it's menu items as fresh, healthy and calorie-wise. If you actually believe this to be 100% true then you've been duped.
According to healthline.com, Subway does offer healthier alternatives in comparison to other fast food joints but many of it's items are "also loaded with fat and sodium." More recently, Canadian news show Marketplace revealed that Subway's chicken is made up of more than 50% soy. But, asides from the chicken, there are a few other things you should skip as per Subway sandwich artist, Redditor Nope_Nope_Nope/.
The Subway employee told users during a Q&A session that there are two sandwiches one should avoid ordering; the meatball marinara and the roast beef.
The reason being that the meatball sub is usually not fresh. He wrote: "... it's actually a guaranteed no. They're checking to see if they can pass as fresh. Trust me, meatballs are annoying to prep, and we know damn well if they're fresh or not without needing to check." As for the roast beef, it goes bad the fastest so you should always ask if the meat is fresh before adding it to your order.
He advises everyone to ask their sandwich artist how fresh the toppings are but he is doubtful, they'll be honest.
Check out the rest of the Reddit Q&A for some more information on what it's like to be behind the counter at Subway.
