Let’s Talk Turkey

Turkey is a deliciously versatile and healthy meat. Low in fat, high in protein, and full of flavour, it is a great addition to your everyday menu. You can have it in pies, meatballs, sauces, salads, sandwiches, and, of course, roasts. So why wait for a special occasion to eat turkey?

Turkey has more protein per gram than other meats and is also one of the leanest meats available. Its high protein content and good source of iron, zinc, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, tryptophan and B vitamins, make for one of the “14 superfoods that will change your life”, according to the book SuperFoods*
