Bilinski’s is a small, family-owned business, located in upstate New York. We’re dedicated to making healthy food convenient and delicious! (All of our products are fully cooked – so they just need to be heated!)
Back in 1989, our family created a better-for-you sausage made from chicken –the first of its kind – because we believed that sausages could be made responsibly, fuel a healthy lifestyle and still be delicious.
We aim for simplicity in all of our recipes – just a few ingredients so the flavors shine through. And we always list every single ingredient (you won’t see “spices” or “flavorings” in our ingredient lists), because we believe that you have a right to know exactly what you’re eating – including how the meat is raised and ingredients are grown. Our chicken is always antibiotic-free and our products are all 100% All Natural or Certified Organic.
We make all natural and organic chicken sausages: The USDA allows products to be labeled “all natural” if they are “minimally processed” and “contain no artificial ingredients or preservatives.” We meet that basic definition, but then go much further. Our products are not just all natural. They are made from chicken meat that has been raised without antibiotics and growth hormones, and fed a 100% vegetarian diet.
We only use boneless, skinless chicken meat. Did you know that the USDA allows products to be labeled “chicken” that contain up to 20% chicken skins? We ONLY use lean, whole muscle boneless, skinless chicken leg or thigh meat. No chicken skins ever! And that doesn’t mean we aren’t for using the whole chicken. No chicken skins means a product with a lot less fat. A lot of companies that use “all” of the bird aren’t buying a whole bird, but buying separate pieces and using the skins as a filler.
We use simple, every day ingredients and list every ingredient. We make our sausage out of things you’d find in your own kitchen, and never use “spices.” We mince fresh garlic, use local wine from the Fingerlakes (for our Apple Chardonnay flavor), etc. We care about what goes into our products and share ingredients transparently.
Our sausages are naturally gluten-free. Our products are all gluten-free, and wheat-free, and there are no gluten allergens in our facility.
Our sausages have no casing. This is a big one! Why put a pork casing on a chicken sausage?! Our chicken sausages have no casing, which not only cuts down on fat, but can be enjoyed by people who don’t eat pork. We’ve had countless people with Alpha-Gal syndrome (an allergy to mammalian meat caused by a tick bite) reach out to us and thank us for our products, because they can enjoy chicken sausage again!
Nicole’s take: My girls love sausage and I am all about keeping it as natural and fresh as possible. So I was really excited to find Bilinski Sausage at my local Whole Foods! I prefer to give my girls chicken sausage and if it’s organic I feel even better about it. I am so impressed with this company and the love it has for its customers and their health and well being. I also love that it is already cooked so I just need to heat. So super quick and delicious and my girls just gobble it up. I just cut it up after heating to serve most of the time, it is so flavorful it doesn’t need anything! But I have also put sauce on it or added it to stir fry. Sausage is so very versatile! We tried the organic apple and also the spinach and garlic. They were both really good and I will be adding these to my shopping list from now on for sure!
