Turkey Meat Is Low-Fat and Health-Giving

Print

turkeyMany of us think of eating turkey only at Christmas or other celebrations, but this low-fat meat is available all year round: whole, in portions or cooked. As well as having most of its fat content in the skin, turkey is rich in B vitamins and zinc which helps to maintain a healthy immune system.

 


Serving suggestions

Use cooked sliced turkey for sandwiches and salads, raw turkey meat to make sweet and sour dishes or delicious low-fat casseroles with vegetables.

Light and dark meat

Light turkey meat (breast) has a fat content of less than 2 g/100 g raw weight, and dark meat (leg & thigh) contains nearly 4 g/100 g. Even dark meat has a fat content which is half that of beef or lamb.
