Perdue launches whole grain breaded chicken line

23-07-2010 | | |

Perdue Farms has announced a new Whole Grain frozen product line that it believes provides consumers with a convenient meal or snack option that is both nutritious and delicious.

Perdue‘s latest line of frozen chicken is made with whole grain breading and includes Whole Grain Breaded Chicken Breast Nuggets, Whole Grain Breaded Chicken Breast Strips and Whole Grain Breaded Chicken Breast Tenders.

The USDA Dietary Guidelines recommend that all Americans make half or more of their grains, whole grains. Each Whole Grain Perdue® product features the Whole Grains Council’s Stamp indicating that each serving provides at least one half-serving (8g) of whole grains.

The line tastes great, says Perdue. In consumer taste tests, consumers loved the appearance, aroma and taste of Perdue Whole Grain. The products provide 4 g of daily fiber per serving and are a good source of Vitamin B1, B6 and Niacin.

Perdue® Whole Grain Breaded Chicken Breast Nuggets and Tenders are also “child nutrition” labeled, clearly identifying the contribution of these products towards fulfilling the USDA’s daily child nutrition meal pattern requirement.
