Consumers soonmayfind a healthier, lower-fat alternative to traditionalporksausage in their breakfast buffetsanddrive-throughmorningmeals thanks to anewchicken sausagepattydeveloped by researchersatthe University of Florida's Institute of FoodandAgricultural Sciences. "The availability of a chickensausagepattybroadensthe choices for breakfast treats, providinganalternative to the traditionalporksausage'andbacon," said Sally Williams, a UFIIFASmeatprocessingandfood safety scientist. "Andbecause of the high lean content of chicken -----'. meat, the fat content of thepattyis reduced significantly." The chicken sausagewouldmake a desirable dish for fast food restaurants, hotelsandsimi lar institutions, Williams said.Andincombinationwitha low cholesterol egg that is also in pro duction, the breakfast chicken pattywouldmakeanexcellent prod uct for special lower-fat diets. Health-conscious consumers often choose leaner chicken prod ucts over pork,andporksausage processors oftenaddchicken or turkeymeatsto their sausage to reduce the fat content, Williams said. The chicken sausagepattyisabout93percent fat free. A 2.5 ounce servinghas7 grams of fat,withsaturatedfat weighinginatonly 2 grams. Each serving also contains 10 grams of proteinand115 calories,with63calories coming from fat. For peoplewhoenjoy sausagebutwantless fat, the chicken sausagepattywouldbea good alternative, said Linda Bobroff, UFIIFAS associate professorandextension nutritionist. The chicken sausagehas55 percent of its calories from fat,whichis lowerthanporksausage's approximately75percentofcalories as fat. "The chicken sausage is substantially lowerinthe totalamountof fat calories and sodium. These are all pluses for the health conscious consumer," Bobroff said.
