Air Chilled

What exactly is air chilled chicken? There are two main methods of processing chicken: air chilling and water chilling. Air chilling is a specific processing method that involves cooling down poultry to the USDA mandated requirement of 40 degrees or cooler, preventing the growth of bacteria that causes foodborne illnesses. While the process is newer to North America, air chilling has been used in Europe for decades. Cool purified air chills the poultry for up to 3 hours as it is being readied for packaging. The process takes much longer than the more conventional Water Chilled method, but has some key benefits when it comes to value, and most notably, exceptional flavor.

One of the biggest advantages of air chilled chicken is the way it tastes. Without water, there is nothing diluting the flavor or texture of our chicken, it cooks better, and that means it tastes better. Tender, juicy meat, and skin that crisps to perfection, makes Air chilled chicken a favorite of home chefs and professionals alike. Air chilled chicken is premium poultry for a premium cooking experience.
