Compared to other fast food chains, Subway is typically the best way to go. But if you are hoping the wraps have low carbs, you are going to feel let down. Subway’s wraps are just as high in carbohydrates as anyone else’s
With that said, you can still enjoy your favorite wraps, just not the way you are used to.
Are Subway Wraps Low Carb?
Sorry to burst your bubble, but Subway’s wraps are not Keto friendly. Even their veggie delight wraps contain 56 carbs each. That is more than you can consume on any given day when following the ketogenic diet.
There isn’t a keto approved wrap on the Subway menu; some of these are even worse for you than an entire sub.
- Steak and Cheese Subs on Tomato Basil Wrap– 59 g of carbs, 19g of fat, 41 g of protein
- Turkey Breast on Spinach Wrap- 57 g of carbs, 10 g of fat, 28 g of protein
- Cold Cut Combo, on Tomato Basil Wrap– 57g of carbs, 27g of fat, 27g of protein
- Subway Seafood Sensation, on Spinach Wrap– 67g of carbs, 41 g of fat, 18g of protein
Where does the majority of these carbs come from? The wrap. So, to avoid going well over your carb limit, removing the wraps is ideal.
