Health Benefits of Turkey
- Turkey is an excellent source of high quality protein. It’s also lower in saturated fat than red meat. One serving of ground turkey (4 oz or 75 grams) has 21 grams of protein to help with muscle building and healing. Protein also helps you feel satisfied so you won’t be as hungry shortly after your meal.
- Turkey contains all of the B vitamins, which are used to convert the food you eat into energy. In particular, 1 serving of turkey contains 80% of the amount of vitamin B3 (niacin) most people need in a day. Niacin is needed for important chemical reactions in the body and for healthy skin and nerve function.
