There’s no surprise that turkey is tasty, versatile and great value for money but did you know it’s also one of the healthiest meats you can buy.
Why turkey is good for you
One of its big benefits is that it is packed with protein, which is essential for growth and repair as part of a varied and balanced diet.
In fact eating just a turkey sandwich means you’ll almost have your daily protein covered as a cooked turkey breast contains 28g of protein which is over half of an adult’s recommend intake and is lower in calories per portion (100g) compared with other meats.
And because turkey has a low calorie count and the lowest saturated fat levels compared with other mainstream meats (at less than 1g per 100g portion) it’s easy to see why it’s a great choice for any weight management diet.
