Grilled to perfection our soy-free Chicken Patties are delicious and a great way to change up the barbecue scene!
Please note: These patties are very lean and when thawed will stick to the packaging like glue! Please take them out of the package while frozen and break them apart to thaw. In fact we have found that when they are barbecued or broiled using low heat from frozen they will cook beautifully and won't dry out.
Ingredients: Chicken, water, clean salt, onion, organic garlic, organic black pepper and organic paprika. UNCOOKED.
For several years we have been aware of the serious issues regarding soy in our food system, like the ones mentioned in this article found in the Utne Reader. As a result of this, we removed soy (and all GMOs) from our livestock feed several years ago with the exception of our poultry. This issue was very complicated because chickens require a high protein ration to finish properly and there are few palatable alternatives that offer the same results as soy. In addition to this, few mills were willing to work with us in making a ration without soy unless we substituted canola or corn — which we did not want to do. Last fall we finally found a small local mill that was willing to make whatever ration that we wanted and this was a game changer. We formulated a ration that not only removed soy and all GMOs, but also included 9 essential oils (including oregano), garlic and vitamin C to help keep the birds healthy. Eliminating soy was not an inexpensive process — it actually added 15% to our production costs. But we feel the benefits of consuming completely soy free products outweigh the relatively small increase in costs. In early November 2013 our first batch of soy-free chickens were placed and we are proud to be able to offer them to our customers.
