Antibiotic Alternatives

Tyson Foods is using essential oils and botanicals – like oregano, thyme, yucca and peppers – as alternatives to antibiotics in our chicken production. We also use probiotics – like the good bacteria found in yogurt – as another antibiotic alternative to help with our chickens’ digestive health.

Our company offers consumers the option of chicken from birds raised without antibiotics under our NatureRaised Farms® brand. We’re also making significant progress eliminating the use of antibiotics also important to human health from our chicken production.
