Subway is a popular fast food store located all around the world. Their cheese products help to make the perfect sandwich and bring it all together. In this article, we look at what cheese does Subway use, as well as some great substitutes you can use at home.
What Cheese does Subway use?
Subway uses a variety of different cheese types for their sandwiches, depending on what is available to them in the particular country. Subway cheese is mass-produced for them by their suppliers.
Top 4 cheeses used at Subway are:
- Process Cheddar
- Swiss Cheese
Processed cheddar is the default cheese at Subway. These are cheese slices, normally approximately 60% cheese and 40% other ingredients. Alternatively, the cheese slices may be a version of Swiss cheese, identified by the holes throughout the slices.
Subway may also use mozzarella. This will be pre-shredded and therefore a mass-produced cheese, rather than the fresh cheese from Italy. Mozzarella is best known for melting well and becoming gooey and stringy once heated.
Subway may also offer feta at some locations. This crumbled fresh cheese is light and salty and ideal to add fresh flavours to your sandwiches.
Some Subway stores in America and the UK may offer pepper jack cheese. This is a version of the classic Monterey Jack cheese (similar to cheddar) made in the US. As the name suggests, PepperJack cheese is full of herbs and spices, such as chilli and pepper.
Where can I Purchase Subway Cheese?
Of course, an ideal replica of these cheeses will not be available in the supermarkets, however, very similar cheeses can be purchased in the supermarkets.
The best comparison for processed cheese is Kraft. These burger-like cheese slices are the most similar in texture and flavour, particularly mild and salty. They come in packets of 10-20 slices and are readily available in the majority of supermarkets.
The same can be said for shredded mozzarella and feta. For example, versions of these classic Italian and Greek cheeses are available in nearly all supermarkets and will help replicate those flavours similar to your Subway favourites.
