What are the health benefits of chicken breast?
This type of poultry is an excellent source of lean protein. Chicken is also a good source of B vitamins, vitamin D, calcium, iron, zinc and trace amounts of vitamin A and vitamin C.
Compared to most red meats, chicken contains 2-3 times more polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats – healthier fats than those found in red meat. Chicken also has zero total carbohydrates, no trans fat, and is low in sodium.
Nutritional and flavor differences between white meat and dark meat
There are two types of meat in every chicken – white meat and dark meat – that have different colors, flavors and nutritional values. These differences are due to the type of muscle and how it is used. The darker meat comes from the chicken’s feet, which are more active and require more oxygen, while the white meat comes from the less active parts of the chicken, like the breast and wings.
Dark chicken and white meat are both equally good sources of protein and B vitamins, however they differ in calories, fat and mineral content. While white meat has less fat and fewer calories than dark meat, most chicken fat lives in the skin rather than in the meat, so the main source of fat and calories for dark chicken comes from the skin that covers the pieces like thighs and thighs. Darker chicken tends to be sweeter and is a better source of iron and zinc due to the increased oxidative stress of those muscles.
