Subway's Veggie Patty and Gardenburger....not vegan :(
FYI, I hear this asked a lot and there is a lot of mis-information on the internet, or just a lack of information. The Veggie Patty is usually not even listed on the menu at the store. And I couldn't even find it mentioned anywhere on the website. It's like they don't want anyone to know there are vegetarian options ???
This is from a Subway customer service rep. It's for a 6 inch sub on wheat or white bread with standard vegetables added. No additional cheese added, except for what you will see is in the ingredients. I bolded what I can tell are the animal ingredients.
Vegetables (mushrooms, water chestnuts, onions, carrots,
green and red bell peppers, black olives), textured vegetable protein (soy
protein concentrate, wheat gluten, water for hydration), egg whites, cooked
brown rice, rolled oats, corn oil, calcium caseinate, soy sauce (water,
soybeans, salt, wheat), contains 2% or less of onion powder, corn starch,
salt, hydrolyzed corn, soy and wheat protein, autolyzed yeast extract,
natural flavors from non-meat sources, sugar, soy protein isolate, spices,
garlic powder, dextrose, jalapeno pepper powder, celery extract.

I have never seen the gardenburger anywhere, but I see the VegiMax patty everywhere.
The good: both are high protein, high fiber
The bad: TONS of salt, not vegan, and the soy that is a key ingredient in the vegimax is probably from Monsanto or something. It seems like Subway may use morningstar to supply their various vegetarian patties. While morningstar from what I know has some organic and vegan options, most use GMO, non-organic soybeans and like the above patties, have milk and/or egg in it. Oh well.
i also agree - veggie delight! extra pickles baby, sweet onion dressing. yum, its like junk food for lunch. i can only imagine what a AWESOME experience it would be to go to a vegan sub place.
"i would like the bbq seitan with greens, avocado, red onion on whole grain!"
"i would like the hummus delux with all the fixings!"
If only you could go to Hillside Quickies in Seattle, It's a vegan sub place! With exactly that! BBQ Seitan was my first sammie there and it was phenom.
