Why is the cholesterol content of the chicken breast sub and salad higher than most of the other subs and salads?

There are several reasons for this:

1. The portion of the roasted chicken in both the salad and sub is larger then the portions of other meat/poultry based sandwiches and salads.

2. All of the other sandwich meats have a greater percentage water and/or other ingredients than the roasted chicken. As a result these meats they have lower cholesterol level than their whole meat counterparts.

3. SUBWAY® restaurants use very lean turkey, roast beef and ham which keeps fat and cholesterol levels lower.
