Dark meat contains 2.64 times more saturated fat than white meat, per gram of protein. One commentator wrote that dark meat contains more vitamins, while a New York Times columnist has stated the two meats are nearly identical in nutritional value, especially when compared with typical red meat. Dark meat is converted into Type II or fast-twitch muscle in the human body. For ground-based birds like chicken and turkeys, dark meats occur in the legs, which are used to support the weight of the animals while they move.
