  • Facts on Turkey:

    Turkey is a known to have protein, selenium, niacin, vitamin B6 and the amino acid tryptothan. It’s a good source of zinc and vitamin B12. The skinless white meat is a high-protein, low-fat food.

    Turkey helps in reducing LDL Cholesterol. The Cholesterol Education Program endorses implementing diets that are low in cholesterol, saturated fat and trans fatty acids. Light, skinless, roasted turkey contain less saturated fat, less total fat, and less cholesterol than chicken, pork or beef.

    It helps in preventing cancer. The amino acid tryptophan which can be found on turkey is needed for T cells, a kind of immune system cell that exterminates cancer cells. T cells activated in the absence of free tryptophan become vulnerable to death via apoptosis.

    It can be a mood enhancer. Neurotransmitters are made from amino acids, and the neurotransmitter serotonin is made from tryptophan. Serotonin supports to improve mood and eating food such as turkey can improve your mood.

    It boosts immune system. There is a rising body of proof showing that the amino acid tryptophan plays an essential role in the immune system. In a study on mice it was found that tryptophan metabolites (molecules formed as the body breaks down the amino acid), work as well as any other existing medicines to lessen symptoms of the autoimmune disease multiple sclerosis.

    It acts as a testosterone booster. The protein from organic turkey will assist in keeping optimum testosterone levels in men. The hormones used in industrial turkey might raise estrogen production and lower testosterone levels.

    It helps to prevent Insomnia. The amino acid tryptophan plays a vital role in sleep and is effective in stimulating sleep in cases of chronic insomnia.

    Turkey is not recommended to come in contact with raw foods, especially the ones you are going to serve uncooked.

    Turkey is very sensitive to heat and hence, if your turkey recipe involves marinating, do this in the refrigerator. Exposure to heat can increase the risks of spoilage
