Subway gets carb conscious with low carb bread test

Subway - The Baja Steak & Jack sub

Beginning November 5th Subway is set to test a new “Hero Bread” in four locations:

  • Savannah, GA
  • Des Moines, IA
  • Colorado Springs, CO
  • Boise, ID

The bread is notable for featuring just one gram of carbohydrates. Yep, you read that right, just a single gram. And that’s not at all, the bread has a whopping 12 grams of protein, 26 grams of fiber and only 100 calories in a six-inch sub.

Those watching their carb intake or following diets such as the Whole 30 or Atkins will surely be gunning for this test to roll out to national menus sooner than later.

Featured picture is the Subway The Baja Steak & Jack sub – a latest addition to the Eat Fresh Refresh update.
