Why does Beypiliç prefer air cooling?
The reason of preferring air chilling is that the chicken has a longer shelf life as it does not contact with water. It does not produce bacteria and keeps its freshness longer as it does not contain water.

In the water-cooled products, the water released from the product, accumulated on the shelf or in the package especially during summer months produces bacteria and odor. Although the chicken meat does not spoil, the water producing bacteria emits odor and causes the chicken meat to become permeated with odor.

Air-cooled chicken protects its pure color as it does not contact with water. It has a yellowish color externally. However, water-cooled products lose their pure colors and acquire a whitish color as they contact with intense water. A chicken naturally fed and cooled by air-cooling method has a light yellow color as in the free-range chickens.

I am Celiac patient; which Beypiliç products can I consume? The poultry split the gluten protein obtained from the feed they eat into amino acids in their digestive systems, and the amino acid groups formed unite among themselves and form different protein groups. So, as it is not possible for the gluten to directly transfer to the meat, the whole chicken, part products and giblet products we produce do not have GLUTEN in their structure.
However, additives containing GLUTEN (bread crumbs, starch etc.) are used in the production of coated and ready-to-eat products produced in our further processing unit (Chicken Nugget, Chicken Schnitzel, Chicken Cordon Bleu etc.).
