Composition of Poultry:

The chief nutritive constituent is protein.

The flesh of poultry is more digestible than meat.

Because there is only a little fat.

Which is found beneath the skin and around the internal organs.

The white meat of the breast and wings is more digestible than the dark meat of the legs.

Which are more muscular and of coarse fiber because of the greater muscular activity of the legs.

Choice of Poultry:

In choosing poultry, plumpness and age are the main point to note.

Sometime, it is difficult to determine the weight of the birds because of the feathers.

Which may be heavier in proportion to the flesh.

Besides that, the birds are sometimes fed with whole grains of corn just before they are taken to the market for sale.

This heavy food stays undigested in the crop and adds to the weight of the bird.

The older the bird, the poorer the flavor and the tougher the flesh.

When the bird is young and flesh tender, the flavor is better.
