    Nutrition Information on Labels


    Am i correct in thinking that the nutritionon the package of ground turkey or
    any meat for that matter is measured raw. When it says 4 oz is a serving size
    that means 4 oz measured raw correct? Thanks guys

    Yes it means 4oz raw. But...4oz cooked is going to have the same nutritional information as 4oz raw. Its still 4oz, unless you weigh it as 4oz before you cook it. The only reason for a change is the moisture, meat shrinks as you cook it. But you see, thats the only reason it would change the content, because it would be 3oz after you cook it, not 4.
