When making any chicken breast recipes idea, you will be faced with what sort of chicken to buy. You will have a variety of options from conventional chicken, free-range chicken, and organic. More and more, people are becoming concerned about where their food comes from, how it’s been raised and what it’s been fed. It may feel overwhelming when you go into the grocery with all the different food labels to choose. You may wonder what it means to buy organic chicken. For chicken to be certified organic, the farms where the chicken is raised must follow a set of strict guidelines and be inspected annually by a third-party certification body to ensure that those standards are met. The standards that they must follow include that the birds be raised organically no later than two days after they hatch. The chicken must be fed certified organic feed for their whole lives. The organic feed cannot contain any animal by-products, antibiotics or genetically engineered grains and cannot be grown using persistent pesticides or any chemical fertilizers. And it is prohibited to give the chicken any drugs, antibiotics or hormones to the organic birds. The Federal regulations for organic chickens prohibit the use of any hormones in the raising of poultry. And all chickens must have access to outdoors. Organic chicken is more expensive than conventional chicken, but it certainly seems worth it given the better lives they are able to live, and the overall quality of the meat.
