Tips & Notes
Turkey offers several health benefits. There are about 32g of protein in a 4 ounce serving of turkey, making it a very good source of these essential amino acids. Turkey is a good source of vitamins B3 and B6. There is less saturated fat in turkey than in other meats. Some saturated fat is essential, but overindulging is not a good thing.
A little-known health benefit of turkey is that it contains trace minerals thought to aid in cancer prevention. Turkey contains selenium, which is essential for the healthy function of the thyroid and immune system. Selenium also has an essential role to play in your antioxidant defense system, helping to eliminate cancer-friendly free radicals in the body.
Turkey is not just for holiday meals. A smart health choice would be to include turkey in your everyday diet.
