The most harmful meat for barbecue

According to the nutritionist, the meat that is heavily fried is unhealthy.

"The best meat for humans is lean turkey, skinless chicken, and free-range poultry raised at home. As well as rabbit and beef," Kravchenko explained.

In her opinion, pork is not very suitable for kebabs, only in some cases.

Kravchenko noted that fatty meat has its benefits, but it should be in moderation. In particular, the membranes of our cells are built from saturated fat, but when the balance between saturated fat and unsaturated fat is exceeded, it can lead not only to excess weight but also to inflammatory processes in the body.

Therefore, the most harmful thing about barbecue is the fried crust that forms on the meat. Because these are the end products of protein glycation, which are also dangerous for inflammatory processes in the body.
