Does white meat chicken (breasts) have more protein than dark meat chicken (drumsticks)?

(You): Does white meat chicken (breasts) have more protein than dark meat chicken (drumsticks)?

(Jeremy): yes. white meat is around 30% protein (100g chicken breast = 30g protein), dark meat around 18% protein (100g chicken drum = 18g protein). dark meat has more vitamins and fat. http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/2877884/white_meat_chicken_vs_dark_meat_nutrition.html?cat=5

(You): thanks! I guess it’s time a I become a “breast man”, ha!

(Jeremy): Lol, yeah… Or a whey protein man

Mix that stuff with milk and instant coffee. A great protein shake.

Whey protein is the best quality. Some people would rather eat their

food. Can’t blame you there either
