WHAT NUTRIENTS ARE IN COOKED POULTRY
CLA's - Vitamins A & E - Omega-3 - Protein - Essential Fatty Acids
We all benefit from seasonal, locally grown food and, the same applies to chickens. Native vegetation (flowers, greens, herbs, native grasses etc..) changes with each season and, this is nature's way of balancing nutrition for animals and, for us too.
Chickens that range freely is a potent key in raising chickens to thrive. They decide where to go, what to eat and how to forage. After-all chickens have been around longer than people and, they know what is best for them.
When heritage chicken breeds are slow-grown and allowed to forage naturally they will find what they need. When observing chickens in nature we learn that this is what they do all day since, It is their natural way of life. Feasting on nature's buffet of goodness is what gives them good health, strong bones, muscling and a powerful immune system. Chickens that forage and range all day on native vegetation, bugs, grubs and consuming decaying organic matter have a great conversion rate. They convert all those wonderful proteins, fats and, micro-organisms into nutrients that we too can benefit from.
Chicken stock is a thick and nutritious concentrated type of gelatin. Stock is made from cooking chicken bones, cartilage, feet, shanks and necks for a long period of time (usually 6-8 hours). The objective in making chicken stock is to extract as much of the nutrients from the bones, cartilage to make a thick, concentrated gelatin-like nutritious substance. When stock is made from an ethical chicken it can contain a tremendous amount of beneficial nutrients which includes
Essential Fatty Acids
Calcium and so much more.
