We’ve had a few requests for information about the chicken sausage we offer. Mostly about the calorie count. It’s a cool product though, so I wanted to take a moment and expound.
1. No sugar or fake sweeteners.
2. No MSG, nitrates or artificial preservatives
3. We used Sea salt!
4. We added small amounts of chicken heart for CoQ 10. You can’t taste it, it’s just there. :)
5. There are 118 calories per 2 oz serving.
Chicken sausage can be purchased here.
