in Bratwurst and Summer Sausage Recipes

DALLAS – March 20, 2014 - Chisholm Trail Grass-fed Beef takes the next step in providing healthy, delicious meats by changing the ingredients in its bratwurst and summer sausage. The company has eliminated all preservatives and replaced them with natural spices in order to provide the healthiest meats possible:

  • Regular and smoked bratwursts now use the following spices: salt, pepper, coriander and nutmeg.
  • Regular and jalapeno summer sausages now include these spices: salt, celery salt, sugar beet powder, paprika, baking soda and garlic powder.
