Turkey is a very rich source of protein, niacin, vitamin B6, and the amino acid tryptophan. Apart from these nutrients, it also contains zinc and vitamin B12. The skinless white meat of turkey is low on fat and is an excellent source of high protein.
Turkey also contains anti-cancer properties. It is a very good source of the trace mineral selenium, which is an essential component required for thyroid hormone metabolism, antioxidant defense systems, and immune function. Scientific studies have suggested that selenium intake can bring down cancer incidence.
