Perdue Launches Whole Grain Breaded Chicken Line

August 2, 2010

SALISBURY, Md., Aug. 2 /PRNewswire/ — Perdue Farms Incorporated today announced a new Whole Grain frozen product line to provide 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. Plus, the line tastes great too – in consumer taste tests, consumers loved the appearance, aroma and taste of PERDUE® Whole Grain. Additionally, the PERDUE® Whole Grain Chicken products provide four grams of daily fiber per serving and are a good source of Vitamin B1, B6 and Niacin. As with all PERDUE® frozen products, the whole grain line is made with only white meat chicken, is an excellent source of protein and contains no preservatives or fillers.

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.

The suggested retail price is $6.99 for the Perdue Whole Chicken Breast Nuggets and Tenders (29oz bag) and $9.49 for the Perdue Whole Grain Breaded Chicken Breast Strips (25oz bag). The products can be found at local supermarket stores.
