I learned something I did not kow a few months ago on feednetwork, and it's important. Especially if your trying to cut fat from you diet. I always thought ground turkey was leaner then ground beef, and a good subetutite. Not so. Some ground turkey is very low fat and a benefit over ground beef. But some has the skin and fat ground in it. Making it as high a fat content as hamburger. A good reason to read labels. When the lable does not give the lean to fat ratio, I compare the fat and calories on thelabels to see if it too high fat. Went to the store and compared every ground raw turkey product to see. Yep, one product we were buying was as high in fat as hamburger (23%). But most were well below ground chucks fat content (15%) Some definations of the different ground beefs. http://homecooking.about.com/od/beef/a/groundbeeflabel.htm chart of fat percetages http://southernfood.about.com/library/weekly/aa090802b.htm As someone who does not eat fat( as little as possible, you won't findme eating a regular hamburger), and will cut it out everywhere possible, this was a surprise and now I know how to properly shop for our food. Eating low fat does not mean you can not eat ground beef, or you can't eat a hamburger, you just need to get the very low fat ground beef. My preference is the 97/3, (97% lean, 3% fat) but it isn't always available here, and it is very expensive, so usully I buy the 93/7, also expensive, but not as high. Now I make sure when I buy ground turkey it is at least 90/10. And I frequently make my burgers from turkey. http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/1407155/why_you_should_use_ground_turkey_in.html Just some stuff I've been learning about eating low fat that i thought I'd share.
