SALISBURY, MD. – Perdue Farms Inc. is launching a new Whole Grain Breaded frozen product line. The products are made with whole-grain breading and include Whole Grain Breaded Chicken Breast Nuggets, Whole Grain Breaded Chicken Breast Strips and Whole Grain Breaded Chicken Breast Tenders.
U.S. Department of Agriculture (U.S.D.A.) Dietary Guidelines recommend Americans make half or more of their daily 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.
In consumer taste tests, consumers said they loved the appearance, aroma and taste of Perdue Whole Grain. Additionally, this line of products provides four grams of daily fiber per serving and each product is 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 toward fulfilling the U.S.D.A.'s daily child nutrition meal pattern requirement.
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).
