Thin ?n Trim carries seven flavors of All Natural Chicken Sausage😕 Sweet Italian, Hot Italian, Wildfire Buffalo, Chipotle & Peach Salsa, Garden Vegetable, Spinach & Onion, and Apple & Cinnamon. The popularity of chicken sausages has grown over the years as people turn to them as a healthier alternative to pork and beef sausages. Here is how we, at Thin ?n Trim, are striving to provide you with all natural chicken sausages that are truly better for you.
While most of our competitors use 100% dark or thigh meat, Thin ?n Trim All Natural Chicken Sausages are made from a combination of 100% skinless chicken breast and skinless chicken thigh meat. The use of skinless chicken ensures the presence of less calories and fat than chicken with skin intact, while the combination of both breast and thigh exhibits less fat content than the use of only thigh meat. Our chicken sausages are 95% fat free! (See The Nutrition of Chicken Breasts vs. Thighs.)
Meat aside, the ingredients used in each of our flavors of chicken sausages are all natural. Our chicken sausage products have no MSG, no gluten, no added nitrates, and no trans fats.
Another thing to note is that our Thin ?n Trim Chicken Sausages are actually skinless!? That means no pork or hog casing like many of our competitors. What that also means is that it is more child-friendly, and you can surely avoid that awkward conversation with a child, explaining that they could be eating parts that came from another animal?s intestines!
