Who says frozen chicken can't be a nutritious snack option? Perdue Farms says its new Whole Grain frozen product line gives consumers with a convenient meal or snack option that is both nutritious and delicious.
Perdue, Salisbury, Md., says it has processed new Perdue frozen chicken with a whole grain breading. The line includes Whole Grain Breaded Chicken Breast Nuggets, Whole Grain Breaded Chicken Breast Strips and Whole Grain Breaded Chicken Breast Tenders. All products feature white meat chicken with no preservatives or fillers, the company says.
Perdue adds that the 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. Additionally, Perdue Whole Grain Chicken products provide four grams 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 also are "child nutrition" labeled, clearly identifying the contribution of these products towards fulfilling the USDA's daily child nutrition meal pattern requirement.
The suggested retail price is $6.99 for the Perdue Whole Chicken Breast Nuggets and Tenders (29-oz. bag) and $9.49 for the Perdue Whole Grain Breaded Chicken Breast Strips (25-oz. bag).
