Wyoming’s Favorite Turkey Meat? White Or Dark? [Poll]
If you have a preference, it might help us to find Wyoming's favorite turkey meat. Is it white, or dark?
This may be too much information on the difference. White meat has fewer calories at 160. That is the breast, says the Department of Agriculture. Dark meat, the thigh, actually has only 30 more calories, at 190.
Dark also has more vitamins than white - iron, zinc, thiamine, riboflavin, B6 and B12.
Flightless birds have more muscles in legs and thighs, which means a juicier, gamier flavor.
Is that enough to leave us totally confused about which is healthier? Maybe we aren't even concerned about that on Thanksgiving anyway.
