Nutritional Value Of Chicken Vs Turkey Vs Duck
Is pork loin (the round part that looks white) the same nutritional value as skinless chicken breast (white meat), if all pork fat is trimmed away?

For cholesterol: 100 vs 119. So, overall, they're about the same. (they both get a "b" rating). ...Read more
