Does Chick-fil-A use peanut oil?
Ever since our founder Truett Cathy created the Chick-fil-A® Chicken Sandwich, we’ve been cooking our hand-breaded chicken exclusively in fully refined, heat-processed peanut oil. The purity of the oil enhances the flavor of the chicken, and we feel good serving our customers chicken cooked in oil that contains no trans fat or cholesterol and contains a balance of “good fats” (mono and polyunsaturated).
For customers concerned about peanut allergies, it may be helpful to know that our peanut oil is refined, bleached and deodorized, which means the proteins in the oil are stripped out during the processing. According to the FDA, highly refined oils, such as highly refined soybean and peanut oil, are not considered major food allergens. But no one knows your own dietary needs better than yourself. Due to the handcrafted nature of our food, variations in our supplier ingredients, and our use of shared cooking and preparation areas, we cannot ensure that our food is free from any allergens. Products containing wheat, egg, soy and milk are all made in our kitchens. Visit our Nutrition and Allergens page or individual Menu item pages to consult the ingredients on each product prior to consuming.
