Chicken meat is traditionally dietitians around the world is considered dietary..
The reason for this is the minimum fat content.
The minimum amount is in the chicken breast..
The amount of fat in it on average does not exceed 8% of the total weight.
100 g brisket contains about 7-8 g of fat.
Therefore, there are no restrictions on the use of this part of the chicken in food.
The value of the food product in athletes
This category is especially concerned with the question of how much protein is contained in chicken breast..
After all, protein in the form of protein and amino acids most strongly affects the growth and qualitative structure of muscle fibers of an athlete..
References answer this question with extreme clarity..
100 g chicken breast about 24-25 g protein.
This component makes it possible to get the body about 190-200 Kcal.
The optimal rate in the daily diet of athletes is 200-250 g of such meat..
This amount of meat is usually divided in two times..
Due to its easy assimilation, chicken meat can be consumed, without fear of gaining extra pounds in the evening.
Physicians, cooks and nutritionists refer this meat to the white meat.
The main characteristic for this type of meat is that it has more protein than red meat, and on the contrary, less fat.
Red meat is beef, pork, lamb and rabbit.
Chicken meat contains even less fat.
The meat of two-month-old chicks of some breeds contains no more than 3% fat by total weight..
The dominant components in the composition of the meat of chicken are: water, proteins and fats.
The ratio between them is:
- water about 60%;
- protein is about 25%;
- fats about 8%;
- The remaining 7-9% are amino acids and protein compounds, collagen and elastin..
When supporters of a strict vegetarian diet claim that modern humanity is quite able to do without animal protein and fats, replacing them with products of plant origin, they do not take into account that the main nutritional value of meat products is in amino acids.
These chemical compounds contained in products of plant origin are not an equivalent substitute for exactly the same compounds in meat and fish..
