The Irish Supreme court has ruled that the bread served at Subway - a US sandwich food chain with branches in more than 100 countries - cannot be defined as bread. Under Ireland's Value-Added Tax Act of 1972 it cannot even be defined as a staple food, according to the Irish Independent, because it contains too much sugar. ... In 2014, Subway decided to start removing the flour whitening agent azodicarbonamide from its baked goods after a petition circulated online. The ingredient is commonly used in the manufacture of yoga mats and carpet underlay and has been banned by the European Union and Australia from use in food products.
