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

November 23, 2009

You might want to start eating more turkey than just on Thanksgiving. Not only is the turkey industry an integral $800 million part of Minnesota’s economy, it’s 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.
