Nutritional Info:

Poulet

If you’re not a vegetarian or vegan, you probably eat chicken, but what kind of chicken do you eat? These days not all chicken farms are created equal. In fact, some of these places treat their birds horribly and produce some low-quality chicken meat. But quality isn’t the only issue — conventional chicken meat has been found to contain some seriously unwanted pathogens, such as Salmonella. That’s why free-range chicken is the only way to go when you consume this common protein food. Free-range chickens are able to roam around, get fresh air and sunshine, and have contact with other chickens.

Did you know that:

Free-range chickens are known for producing eggs that are much more nutritionally dense than the eggs laid by caged hens. According to one study conducted in 2007, free-range eggs are a much healthier choice in a lot of specific ways. This study showed that compared to eggs from battery-caged hens, eggs from free-range hens contained:

⅓ less cholesterol

¼ less saturated fat

⅔ more vitamin A 

2 times more omega-3

3 times more vitamin E

7 times more beta-carotene

So what are you waiting for to support your local producer and start purchasing locally free range bred chicken.
