How Much Protein is there in Turkey?

How many grams of protein are there in 100 grams of Turkey Breast?

In a typical 100g of cooked turkey breast with the skin removed you’ll get around 23g of protein. So Christmas or Thanksgiving dinner can certainly provide an abundant source of protein.

In comparison you’ll get around 28g of protein per 100g of cooked chicken breast so a better choice generally if your looking to maximize your everyday protein intake.

The amount of protein per 100g cooked will always be higher than 100g raw due to the weight of the moisture lost during cooking.

An uncooked piece of meat contains quite a lot of water so 100g cooked consists of a higher percentage of actual meat than 100g raw.
