No Added Antibiotics:
Gerber requires that no antibiotics are ever added to the feed or water consumed by Gerber chicken.
Gerber’s chickens are fed an all-vegetable diet, consisting of corn, soybeans and soybean oil with added vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. No by-products or additives are ever included in the feed fed to Gerber chickens.
Gluten is a naturally occurring protein found in wheat, rye and barley. Even if Gerber’s chickens consume one of these grains as part of their diet, the gluten is broken down completely during the digestion process. Muscle tissue or meat from these birds will not contain gluten. Gerber has even taken the extra step to test its products to confirm that the meat is indeed gluten free, and all tests came back negative. Gerber does not enhance its products in any way, so consumers who have a gluten intolerance can feel confident in purchasing and consuming Gerber chicken.
In the United States, hormones are not allowed in the production of poultry or market hogs. Consistent with federal regulations, Gerber prohibits the use of hormones in the raising of their chickens.
Gerber chicken is just that: Gerber chicken. Gerber’s chickens consume an all vegetarian diet with no antibiotics, by products, or artificial ingredients. In addition, Gerber’s chicken products are never enhanced or injected with water based solutions to increase its water holding capacity or juiciness. In fact, Gerber’s customers often relay that Gerber chicken actually tastes like the chicken that was raised on their own grandfather or grandmother’s farm.
