Why turkey is good for you
Turkey is high in protein and essential for growth and repair, as part of a varied and balanced diet and healthy lifestyle. Nearly all protein found in turkey meat can therefore be used to maintain the function and health of our body cells.
Not all calories are equal when it comes to body weight control. Research shows that people who eat high protein, low fat diets tend to be slimmer than people who eat other types of diet. This is because high protein foods may help us to feel fuller for longer.
- Cooked turkey contains 34g of protein per 100g, which is nearly 3/4 of an adult’s recommended daily allowance.
- Turkey offers as much protein as roast beef but without as many calories or grams of saturated fat.
- Compared with other meats, turkey breast has the lowest saturated fat level at less than 1g per 100g (4oz) portion, compared with other mainstream meats.
