How Many Ounces Is A Typical Chicken Drumstick?


Quote  |  Reply
I bought the Tyson Brand chicken drumsticks. It says 4oz is 150 calories. Since i dont have a food scale i cant really measure the 4 oz so im wondering if the whole drumstick is 4 oz???

How many servings does it say are in the package?

How many drumsticks are in the package?

I would think that the 4 ounces would refer to the meat on the drumstick (and not the bone) but with food labelling, you never know.

4 ounces would be a lot of meat to be on one drumstick.  If the drumsticks are smallish, I'd imagine they are more likely 2 ounces of meat and so, 2 would be 150 cals.

 

yep -

in the database, 1 drumstick, skin and bone removed, has 78 calories

so, looks like 2 drumsticks = 1 serving = 150 cals

yeah, they're about 75 cals each

the # ounces is referring to the meat on them - so if you cook them and then take the meat off and weigh it on a scale, you'll find that the meat from one drumstick weighs very close to 2 ounces

which has about 75 calories
