What goodness is there in Chicken?
Our Birds Eye chicken products are all a great source of protein, and provides a range of other nutrients that our bodies need.
Key nutrients found in our Chicken products include:
• Vitamin B3 (niacin) - this vitamin contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism, normal nervous system functioning and the reduction of tiredness and fatigue. Why not try our delicious chicken dippers or wholegrain chicken nuggets to boost your intake of this important vitamin tonight?
• Vitamin B6- like vitamin B3, this vitamin also contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism, normal nervous and immune system functioning and the reduction of tiredness and fatigue. Our products including sweet and sticky BBQ chicken chargrills and hot and spicy chicken in breadcrumbs are all good sources of vitamin B6!
• Phosphorus- this mineral contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism, and the maintenance of normal bones and teeth. For a simple and tasty dinner, that will boost your phosphorus intake, try our southern friend chicken in breadcrumbs with your favourite vegetables and potatoes or rice.
Why is protein so important?
We all need to make sure we consume enough good quality protein to stay healthy. How much protein we need varies by the individual, with needs dependant on body weight, childhood age, etc. Protein has a number of important roles in the body, including muscle growth and maintenance, and maintaining normal bones. Protein is essential for growth, maintenance and repair of the body. And it’s especially important that children consume enough protein, as it’s required for the normal growth and development of their bones. A meal containing Birds Eye chicken, our peas and potatoes is perfectly balanced and a great source of protein.
Is our Chicken full of hidden sugars?
No! Rest assured that our Birds Eye chicken products do not contain hidden sugars. To check for yourself, please refer to our clear nutrition and ingredient labelling on all of our product packs.
