Irish Court Says Subway Bread Is Too Sugary to Be Called ‘Bread’

MIAMI, FL - OCTOBER 21: A Subway sandwich is seen in a restaurant as the company announced a settlement over a class-action lawsuit that alleged that Subway engaged in deceptive marketing for its 6-inch and 12-inch sandwiches and served customers less food than they were paying for on October 21, 2015 in Miami, Florida. While it denies the claims, Subway said that franchisees would be required to have a measurement tool in stores to make sure loaves are 12-inches. (Photo by Joe Raedle/Getty Images)

An Irish court has ruled that Subway bread can’t be called “bread” because it contains too much sugar.

Under Ireland’s Value-Added Tax Act of 1972, the Subway bread wouldn’t be tax-exempt because it’s not considered a staple due to its sugar content.

The bread’s sugar content is five times more than the qualifying limit and the ruling was made on the white and wholegrain bread.

In 2014 Subway removed the start of the flour whitening agent azodicarbonamide which is banned in the European Union and Australia and also used in the manufacturing of yoga mats and carpet underlay.
