Nutrition

  • Poultry is found in the protein group of the food guide pyramid

    • 2 to 3 servings per day

    • 3 oz. servings

  • Contains high-quality protein

  • Dark meat is slightly higher in fat than light meat

  • Turkey & chicken are lower in fat and calories than most cuts of red meat

  • Remove the skin to reduce fat content


Poultry grading

Poultry Grading

  • A round inspection seal indicates the bird was healthy, processed under sanitary conditions and labeled correctly.

  • A grade shield may also appear to indicate quality.

    • Most poultry sold at the retail level is U.S. Grade A

    • Grade B & C birds are usually used in processed products


Buying poultry

Buying Poultry

  • Choose birds that are meaty with well-distributed fat and blemish-free skin

  • Look for frozen birds that are solidly frozen

  • Beware of dirty and torn wrappers and freezer burn (pale, dry, frosty areas)


Storing poultry

Storing Poultry

  • All poultry (except canned) is very perishable

  • Use refrigerated poultry within 2 to 3 days

  • Poultry can be stored in the freezer for 6 to 8 months


Cooking poultry

Cooking Poultry

  • Cooking poultry for too long or at too high a temperature can make it tough, dry and flavorless

  • Use a meat thermometer to accurately check doneness

  • Depending on the piece of chicken, cook to an internal temperature of 170ºF to 180ºF

  • Poultry should always be cooked to well-done - It should not be pink in the middle!
