Healthy snacks has always been Wilde's mission. When the idea for Chicken Chips came about in 2016, we wanted to share a chip that made you feel good after eating a bag. Not only feeling good, but also good for you. It's why it's taken us two years to launch Wilde Chicken Chips -- we were extremely thoughtful about our ingredients and we didn't cut corners with the supply chain. As a result, see what Wilde Chips are "free from."
Wilde Chicken Chips are allergen-free -- free from the "Big 8" major allergens. This means that our Chicken Chips are:
- Dairy-Free (e.g., cow's milk, cream, casein)
- Gluten-Free (e.g. wheat germ, bulger, barley)
- Soy-Free (e.g., soy milk, tofu, soy protein isolate)
- Tree Nut-Free (e.g., almonds, walnuts, pecans). Please note: USDA/FDA standards consider coconut a tree nut; our chips are cooked in coconut oil.
- Fish-Free (e.g., tuna, bass, flounder, cod)
- Shellfish-Free (e.g., crab, lobster, shrimp)
While we produce our chips without these foods, our chips are produced in a quarantined area of the production facility, which we share with another meat product manufacturer, to eliminate the risk of any cross-contamination.
Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO)
Wilde Chicken Chips are also free from GMOs. The Non-GMO Project, an independent third-party nonprofit organization, has verified that our supply chain for producing the chips does not contain any GMOs.
Wilde Chicken Chips are also free from refined sugars. Refined sugars include sweeteners, corn syrup or artificial sweeteners like Splenda.
Wilde Chicken Chips are free from empty calories. What does that mean? Empty calories are calories derived from food containing little to no nutrients. While our Chicken Chips contain 170 calories per serving, there are actually many health benefits and nutrients: 7g of protein per serving and coconut oil, which may actually help to protect against heart disease and stroke while lowering your LDL, or “bad,” cholesterol.
