Subway Retreats

Subway announces it will stop using an additive, azodicarbonamide, because of a campaign by the Food Babe.Azodicarbonamide is used as a bleaching agent and rising enhancer in some of Subway’s breads.  On heating (baking) it decomposes to mostly biurea.  The campaign against azodicarobnamide is based on the chemical can be an inhalation sensitizer.  The campaign uses red herrings that azodicarbonamide is used in the manufacture of non-food items.  So, what?  This is a case of chemophobia and food paranoia.   I can’t quite understand the reason for getting starting this campaign.  However, I can understand Subway’s retreat.  Why put up with bad press?  What’s next?
