Here are some questions frequently asked.

Are your products allergen-free?

Do your products contain antibiotics?

The chicken meat used for all of our Yummy products comes from USDA approved plants in the United States. 

For our products with the claim: NO ANTIBIOTICS EVER 
The chicken are raised without the use of antibiotics. 

For our products without this claim: 
The suppliers we are working with are following the regulation below about the use of antibiotics and chicken: 
· Antibiotics may be used to prevent disease and increase feed efficiency. 
· A withdrawal period is required from the time antibiotics are administered before the bird can be slaughtered. This ensures that no residues are present in the bird’s system. FSIS randomly samples poultry at slaughter and tests for residues. Data from this monitoring program have shown a very low percentage of residue violations.

Do these products contain GMO ingredients?

We understand this is a topic that has been raised by a number of organizations questioning the ingredients in the food we eat. Our products contain chicken that are fed with US grains and the same thing for the breading and batters, which are also produced with US grains. Due to our use of these seeds and the grains produced, we are unable to label our products free of GMO ingredients. 
Our food scientists are continuing to monitor this situation and should GMO grains become more available, we will look for ways we can address the question you raised for the benefit of our valued consumers. 
Feel free to contact us should you need further information or assistance.

Are the chicken products baked or fried?

Technically, both. Our chicken products are flash-fried, which helps to get the breading set before they are baked in a really big oven in order to be fully cooked.

This product is labeled as "All Natural". What does that mean, exactly?

As per the USDA, the All Natural definition means the product does not contain any artificial ingredients, flavors or preservatives and has been produced under minimal process.

When I scan the ingredients list, I see "Isolated Soy Protein." What is that?

Soy Protein Isolate is a dry, powder food ingredient that has been separated or isolated from the other components of the soybean, making it 90 to 95 percent protein and nearly carbohydrate and fat-free. Our primary goal is to supply great products made of the finest ingredients with great nutritional value. Feel free to contact us should you have any additional questions.
