Believe it or not all ground turkey is not the same. Always be sure to read the label when purchasing your ground turkey especially if you’re watching your fat intake. A one pound package of regular ground turkey can have up to 68 grams of fat but a one pound package of extra lean ground turkey can have only 4 grams of fat.
