Marinated turkey tenderloins
Cargill Meat Solutions (CMS), producer of Honeysuckle White and Shady Brook Farms turkey products, introduces teriyaki flavor marinated turkey tenderloins. These marinated turkey tenderloins provide a delicious alternative to pork tenderloins, the company relays.
Naturally protein-packed, turkey is a lower fat, healthier choice than any other meal options. It simply cannot be beat for its health attributes, says Dr. Bob Wildman, R.D., a nationally recognized nutrition expert and director of nutrition at Bally Total Fitness. He is also the author of The Nutritionist: Food, Nutrition, and Optimal Health.
The new flavor joins three existing choices in its marinated turkey tenderloin line: Rotisserie, Homestyle, and Lemon Garlic.
• Rotisserie is rubbed with a savory blend of onion, peppers, and cilantro
• Homestyle features traditional oven-roasted turkey flavor
• Lemon Garlic is a blend of tangy lemon and robust garlic
New, more attractive packaging makes the marinated turkey tenderloin products more appealing in grocers’ meat cases. The vacuum package features an attractive, full-panel photo of the prepared tenderloin and the colorful brand treatment on one side. The reverse side is clear, allowing a full view of the product by the consumer. Each package weighs approximately 1.85 pounds and contains two marinated turkey tenderloins.
Introducing DELI LITES™
Perdue’s new DELI LITES™ are lighter alternatives to traditional breaded-chicken products. Created to give consumers and delis versatile lightly-breaded chicken products, these new products have a noticeable lower percentage of breading than traditional breaded-chicken products, the company relays.
