At a Glance: Nutritional Values of Beef, Lamb, Pork, Chicken

The following table offers an At A Glance view of the nutrient make up of Beef, Lamb, Pork and Chicken. When looking at the nutrient value that various meat types contain per 100gms, keep in mind that you need to be consuming a variety of food sources in order to have a balanced diet. So while the percentage values for some meat types may seem low, it’s the combination of different sources – meat, veggies, fruit, wholegrains, etc – that is key.
