What's the Difference Between White and Dark Meat Turkey?
Most people around the table will have a definite preference for their serving of bird: white meat or dark. Dark meat tends to be richer, more flavorful and moister; white meat is less fatty, blander and drier. Lots of people also choose white meat because they think it's healthier – it has less fat and fewer calories than dark. A 3 1/2 ounce serving of white meat (about the size of a computer mouse) has 161 calories and 4 grams of fat, versus 232 calories and 13 grams of fat for dark meat (and dark meat has more vitamins). Try a heritage turkey – a slow-growing, pasture-raised bird that more resembles wild turkeys of yesterday in flavor, especially the dark meat.
