We wanted to know what would be the healthier way to enjoy Christmas Dinner, so we looked at the research and found the following….
Chicken wins in the high quality protein count, with 19g vs turkey containing 18g.
But the Turkey has only 6.7g of fat vs 10.6 found on an average chicken.
Chicken has a slightly favourable nutritional profile which can play an important role for individuals in specific groups (pregnant women, children and the elderly).
Ultimately, both have a good overall nutritional value, with high-biological-value protein, vitamin, and mineral content and low fat content.
So you can enjoy either on Christmas Day as part of a balanced intake.
For either Chicken or Turkey we like Cobbs Farm Shop for their locally sourced meats with high standards of animal welfare.
