This afternoon I ran to Aldi and one of the things I wanted to look at was the chicken. I compared Kirkwood to Kirkwood Never Any!
The chicken with the sodium added is $2.29 per pound. A 4 ounce serving contains 105 mg. of sodium.
This chicken without sodium added has 50 mg of sodium. The chicken with the sodium has less fat, less cholesterol and less protein.
The chicken without sodium is $4.29 per pound. So, instead of paying $4.17 for just a tad more chicken, I paid $7.06 for a little less chicken. Is it worth it? Cannot say . . a little more sodium – 4 oz. serving of meat – 105 mg vs. 50 mg. There’s 55 mg. in one Dr. Pepper. I like that the Never Any! has never had antibiotics but I’m not sure how important that is either since any antibiotics used in chicken should have cleared their system before they’re butchered and they’re tested.
There’s good information here about chickens – what’s allowed, what’s not allowed and how to interpret the hype.
