According to an analysis by the Environmental Working Group: “The controversial yoga mat chemical that Vani Hari, creator of FoodBabe.com, campaigned to remove from Subway sandwich bread has turned up in nearly 500 items and more than 130 brands of bread, stuffing, pre-made sandwiches and snacks.”

EWG found azodicarbonamide (or ADA), an industrial foaming agent, used in yoga mats, and flip-flops, on the labels of many well known food brands including Pillsbury, Sara Lee, Smucker’s and Fleischman’s, among others.
