Did you know that turkey breast roasted without the skin is lower in fat than any other commercially available meat? That makes it a good choice for dieters and those watching their cholesterol levels. In addition, it is a good source of zinc, iron, and the B vitamins. The dark meat is good for you too. It has more fat and calories than the breast but it also has more iron and zinc.
Caution: If you buy ground turkey, read the label! Ground turkey often is mostly dark meat and may contain the fatty skin. And remember self-basting turkeys are injected with saturated fat!
