Chicken Fact #1: Chicken is the #1 protein – and #1 poultry – India
Chicken is one of the most versatile proteins. It can be prepared in many ways—roasted, broiled, grilled, or poached, in soups, stews and potpies—and with a variety of seasonings, toppings and sauces. It’s no wonder that chicken is a staple in practically every kitchen.
Chicken Fact #2: Chicken is an extremely nutritious protein
According to health professionals and nutritionists, protein is the cornerstone of a healthy and balanced diet. Chicken is one of the best sources of what nutritionists call “high-quality” protein. The body uses it to create new cells, repair existing ones, and produce the enzymes necessary to boost metabolism and promote healthy digestion.

Not only is chicken packed with muscle-building protein and nutrients, but research shows eating chicken may help with weight control. Chicken also gives consumers the highest rate of nutrients for their food dollar.
Chicken Fact #3: Chicken – and ALL poultry – never contains added hormones or steroids
So, while a “no hormones added” label on a package of chicken may lead you to believe that the product is different or healthier than similar products without that label, all chicken products sold in India must be free of added or artificial hormones and steroids. In fact, labels that read: “raised without hormones” or “no hormones added” must also include a statement saying that no hormones (or steroids) are used in the production of any poultry raised in India.
So if you’re deciding between a package of chicken that says “no hormones added” and one that doesn’t, you can rest assured that neither of them do.
