It’s time for another Austin Sports Medicine 101 class!
If you’re planning on partaking in turkey this holiday season, you may want to know a little more about its nutritional value. Most of us already know it’s high in protein and low in fat. But did you also know it is a great source of iron, zinc, potassium, phosphorus and the B vitamins?
Not all parts of the turkey were created equally. Take a look below to see how your favorite part of the bird weighs out. The values below are based on 100 grams (about 3.5 oz) of sliced meat from a whole roasted turkey:
|Breast w/skin||194||8 grams||29 grams|
|Breast w/o skin||161||4 grams||30 grams|
|Wing w/skin||238||13 grams||27 grams|
|Leg w/skin||213||11 grams||28 grams|
|Dark meat w/skin||232||13 grams||27 grams|
|Dark meat w/o skin||192||8 grams||28 grams|
|Skin only||482||44 grams||19 grams|
Enjoy your holiday meal, but remember to eat wisely!
