Foster Farms has introduced a whole grain, lower-fat, lower-sodium chicken corn dog for foodservice customers.
The product contains a full serving of whole grain, 47 percent less fat, further reduced sodium, higher fiber, zero trans fat and fewer calories than the original corn dog.
"We are filling the lunchtime need with a happy medium," said Greta Janz, Foster Farms vice president of frozen and prepared foods, in a news release. "With the added nutritional value of whole grains, lower fat of chicken corn dogs and now, further reduced sodium levels, we’re able to offer a school lunch solution that satisfies kids’ taste and parents’ desire for healthier choices."
