as reported by just-food.com: The US chicken
has benefited most from the onslaught of high-protein,
low-carbohydrate diets according to a recent survey
conducted by PKS Research Partners. The survey conducted
for the National Chicken Council and the US Poultry
& Egg Association revealed that the benefits for
the chicken industry were greater than gains made by
either the beef or pork industries.
Among those following the high-protein, low-carbohydrate
approach to dieting, twice as many people report eating
more chicken than eating more beef, and pork comes in
third among the major meats, according to the survey.
“Chicken is a much bigger winner from low-carb
diets than commonly realized,” said Paul Prekopa
of PKS Research Partners, adding that chicken benefits
from its low-fat reputation as well.
