Tyson Chicken Nuggets - A Staple in Our Food Allergy Freezer

Smart Allergy~Friendly Product Review
Having offered product suggestions for years, I thought it was time to review some of our family FAVs and review their ingredients lists.  Managing 6 of the top 8 allergens plus a few extra, we are thankful to have a few 'SAFE' items continually in our freezer.  Tyson chicken nuggets have been a family standby for years, and their ingredients haven't changed in years~ 

Throw in some of their favorite Kraft Barbeque Sauce, and the kids and their friends have lunch or dinner ready in NO time!  As I travel regularly, 'Dad' can always count on there being a bag handy to help making meals easier. 

We avoid milk, eggs, all nuts and fish and this product has been a lifesaver on days when I'm gone or don't have time to cook from scratch.   



32 oz. bag of Tyson 100% All Natural Fully Cooked Chicken Nuggets, distributed by Tyson Foods, Inc., P.O. Box 2020, Springdale, AZ.

Ingredients listed include:  CHICKEN, WATER, SALT, AND NATURAL FLAVOR.
  • BREADED WITH:  WHEAT FLOUR, WATER, WHEAT STARCH, WHITE WHOLE WHEAT FLOUR, SALT, CONTAINS 2% OR LESS OF THE FOLLOWING: YELLOW CORN FLOUR, CORN STARCH, DRIED ONION, DRIED GARLIC, DRIED YEAST, BROWN SUGAR, EXTRACTIVES OF PAPRIKA, AND SPICES.  BREADING SET IN VEGETABLE OIL

For more information, you can contactTyson Chicken Nugget Page or 1-800-233-6332 


It also states on the packaging 0 G TRANSFATS, NO PRESERVATIVES and NO FILLERS


I know that 'NATURAL FLAVORS' may be of concern for some.  Our personal experience is that we have had NO problems with this product and milk and nut allergies are our most serious. 

One caution is to be careful of the size of the package.  Tyson used to package a FAMILY SIZED bag of chicken nuggets and these contained MILK in them.  I haven't seen this particular packaging in a few years, however, I would still suggest keeping an eye out for this in case it is offered in your area.
