Turkey: the other white meat – yet so nutritious. Turkey has been enjoyed as a dietary staple in the US for hundreds of years, yet it remains a special occasion meal still for Aussies despite its strong nutritional properties.

Skinless turkey is extremely lean with <10% fat and more than 30g protein per serve and is a rich source of Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, selenium and zinc.

Turkey can be added to wraps, its mince used in a lean burger or spaghetti sauce and its legs make a rich tasting Winter soup.

So if you are looking for a new lean protein to try, check out lean turkey mince, breast or turkey legs for cooking at supermarkets.
