In this sense, the nutritionist and responsible for restoration of HLA Montpellier, Nerina Montalbán, has pointed out that "the poultry meat is very nutritious because of its high content of protein. It is a dish ideal for people with sensitive stomach to be very easy to digest".
Poultry meat is a source of vitamins of group B and also, minerals of iron, potassium, magnesium, zinc and phosphorus. "But the big advantage is that cholesterol is concentrated in the skin. Remove the skin before cooking the bird, considerably decreases their lipid content and, therefore, also your caloric intake," indicated. Specifically, chicken meat, one of the richest and most appreciated, stands out for its high content in vitamin B3 and folic acid.

This name "white meat", responds to a lower concentration of myoglobin, a protein that is created with the binding of oxygen with iron, it is beneficial to the muscles.
The nutritional composition of game animals
Secondly, the paper focused on the nutritional composition of the game, which is highly variable and is determined by factors such as the species, age, sex, type of food, etc. "For all this becomes very difficult to assess in a general way the nutritional support you provide these meats, even though they have very little fat content," mentioned Neria.
Another very important advantage is that they have a higher protein content, being proteins of high biological value. Also they are rich in iron and phosphorus, and contain significant amounts of magnesium and potassium. "They are a food especially indicated for people who suffer from anemia," emphasized . In terms of their vitamin content, these meats stand out mainly because of its contribution in terms of vitamins of group B, as well as the meat supply.
