Turkey -- the other, other white meat: not just for Thanksgiving anymore

November 20, 2008

You might want to start eating more turkey than just on Thanksgiving. Not only is the turkey industry an integral $800 million part of Minnesotas economy, its also a more healthful alternative to other meats. A University of Minnesota expert who can talk turkey is:
 
Sally Noll, University of Minnesota Extension professor in turkey production
Noll can discuss how turkey is an emerging food source and nutritious option to other meats. It's a good protein source and very low in fat, says Noll. So for those looking to limit caloric intake and get a balanced protein source, turkey meat is a very good product. She can also explain how her work as a U of M researcher helps Minnesota producers.
