The Poultry industry has two accepted ways to cool the birds when they are processed – using air or using water. Most processors use the water bath method, cooling their chickens in large communal vats of ice-cold chlorinated water.
But at Valley we source only air chilled birds. During processing they are cooled with air and never bathed in chlorine or injected. Here’s why:
We sell chicken, not water.
When chickens are water chilled, they absorb some of the water they’re placed in and then they’re injected with more water, so when you buy water-chilled chicken, part of what you’re paying for is water.
Some estimates say that, on average, water is actually 8% of the chicken’s body weight when it’s sold. But when you buy air-chilled chicken, all you’re paying for is chicken.
Air-chilled chicken tastes better.
Because our birds aren’t subjected to the chlorine or added salt and water that is absorbed by the birds in the industrial chilling tanks, chefs agree that air chilling preserves the true flavor of the birds.
Air-chilled chicken cooks better.
The water in water-chilled chicken evaporates as it cooks, creating shrunken, rubbery chicken, especially when it’s grilled or barbecued. Further, air-chilled chicken cooks faster, absorbs marinades and seasonings much better, and has a crispier skin after cooking.
Any seasoned chicken is spiced with our own custom milled blend of spices.
