    • B.

      Turkey

    • C.

      Ham

    • D.

      Duck

    • E.

      Goose

    Correct Answer
    C. Ham
    Explanation
    The correct answer is ham because ham is not a type of poultry. Poultry refers to domestic birds that are raised for their meat and eggs, such as chicken, turkey, duck, and goose. Ham, on the other hand, is a type of meat that is derived from the leg of a pig. Therefore, it does not fall under the category of poultry.

    • D.

      Iron

    • E.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    Protein is a macronutrient that is essential for the growth, repair, and maintenance of tissues in the body. It is composed of amino acids and is found in a variety of food sources. All protein sources, including animal and plant-based proteins, contain varying amounts of phosphorus, niacin, riboflavin, and iron. Therefore, all of the above options are correct and can be considered good sources of these nutrients.

  • 3. 

    Older birds have more fat than

    Correct Answer
    younger birds
    Explanation
    This answer suggests that younger birds have less fat compared to older birds. As birds age, they tend to accumulate more fat reserves, which can be beneficial for energy storage during migration or periods of food scarcity. This is a common phenomenon observed in many bird species, where older individuals have higher levels of fat to sustain their energy needs.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Dark meat is slightly lower in fat than light meat.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Dark meat is actually slightly higher in fat than light meat. This is because dark meat comes from muscles that are used more frequently, such as the legs and thighs of a chicken or turkey. These muscles have more fat content to provide energy for prolonged use. On the other hand, light meat, which comes from less active muscles like the breast, tends to be leaner with lower fat content. Therefore, the correct answer is false.

  • 5. 

    You can buy poultry fresh, frozen, or

    Correct Answer
    in processed poultry products
    Explanation
    The given answer suggests that poultry can be purchased in three different forms: fresh, frozen, or in processed poultry products. This means that consumers have the option to buy poultry that is freshly harvested, stored in a frozen state, or in the form of processed products such as sausages, nuggets, or deli meats. This provides flexibility and convenience for individuals who may prefer different forms of poultry based on their needs and preferences.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Grade B and C birds are usually used in processed products.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Grade B and C birds are usually used in processed products because they may have some imperfections or lower quality compared to Grade A birds. These imperfections could include smaller size, bruising, or other defects that make them less suitable for being sold as whole birds. However, they can still be used in processed products such as canned chicken, chicken nuggets, or chicken sausages where the appearance or size of the bird is less important. Therefore, it is true that Grade B and C birds are typically used in processed products.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Which chicken pieces are very meaty?

    • A.

      Breasts

    • B.

      Legs

    • C.

      Thighs

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    The chicken pieces that are very meaty are the breasts, legs, and thighs. These parts of the chicken are known for their high meat content and are often preferred by those who enjoy a substantial amount of meat in their meals. Therefore, all of the options provided (breasts, legs, and thighs) are correct as they are all very meaty chicken pieces.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    All poultry, except canned, is very

    Correct Answer
    perishable
    Explanation
    The statement indicates that all types of poultry, except for canned poultry, are very perishable. This means that poultry, such as chicken or turkey, has a short shelf life and is likely to spoil quickly if not properly stored or preserved. Canned poultry, on the other hand, is preserved through the canning process, which allows it to have a longer shelf life and be less susceptible to spoilage. Therefore, the correct answer is "perishable," as it accurately reflects the perishable nature of non-canned poultry.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    How are poultry and meat similar?

    Correct Answer
    They are both protein foods.
    Explanation
    Poultry and meat are similar because they both belong to the category of protein foods. Both poultry and meat are excellent sources of high-quality protein, which is essential for building and repairing tissues, supporting the immune system, and many other important functions in the body. Protein is an essential macronutrient that is necessary for overall health and well-being. Therefore, the similarity between poultry and meat lies in their shared characteristic of being protein-rich food options.

    Which is NOT a cooking method of poultry?

    • A.

      Roast

    • B.

      Broil

      Stew

    • D.

      Boil

    • E.

    Boiling is not a cooking method commonly used for poultry. Roasting involves cooking the poultry in an oven, broiling is cooking under direct heat, stewing is a slow-cooking method in liquid, and frying is cooking in hot oil. Boiling, on the other hand, typically involves submerging food in boiling water, which is not a common method for cooking poultry.

      Ducks

    • B.

      Chickens

    • C.

      Turkeys

    • D.

      Geese

    • E.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    E. All of the above
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "all of the above" because the statement "You can roast ducks, chickens, turkeys, and geese" implies that you have the option to roast all of these types of birds. Therefore, the answer includes all the mentioned options.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Which two types of poultry can you broil?

    Correct Answer
    turkeys and chickens
    Explanation
    You can broil turkeys and chickens because both of these poultry types have tender meat that can be cooked quickly under high heat. Broiling involves placing the meat on a rack close to the heat source in the oven, allowing the direct heat to cook the meat. This method is ideal for poultry as it helps to retain the moisture and results in a crispy and flavorful exterior.

    • A.

      Flour

    • B.

      Bread crumbs

    • C.

      Egg

    • D.

      Crackers

    Correct Answer
    D. Crackers
    Explanation
    To fry poultry, you should not roll the pieces in crackers. This is because crackers are not commonly used as a coating for frying poultry. Instead, flour, bread crumbs, or egg are more commonly used to create a crispy and flavorful coating on the poultry when fried.

  • 14. 

    Oven-frying is sometimes called baking.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Oven-frying is a cooking method that involves using the oven to achieve a crispy texture, similar to frying. It typically involves coating the food with a small amount of oil and baking it at a high temperature. Since oven-frying is a variation of baking, it can be referred to as baking. Therefore, the statement that oven-frying is sometimes called baking is true.

  • 15. 

    You can braise poultry

    Correct Answer
    on top of the range or in the oven
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "on top of the range or in the oven" because braising is a cooking technique that involves searing the meat on high heat and then cooking it slowly in liquid. This can be done either on top of the range using a braising pan or in the oven using a Dutch oven or a similar oven-safe dish. Both methods allow for the meat to be cooked at a low and consistent temperature, resulting in tender and flavorful poultry.

  • 16. 

    When you stew poultry, you can add carrots, celery, and seasonings for flavor.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    When stewing poultry, it is common to add carrots, celery, and seasonings to enhance the flavor of the dish. These ingredients not only add their own distinct flavors but also contribute to the overall taste and aroma of the stew. Adding carrots and celery can also provide additional texture and color to the dish. Therefore, it is true that when stewing poultry, one can add carrots, celery, and seasonings for flavor.

    Poultry prepared in the microwave comes out dry and flavorless.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Poultry prepared in the microwave does not necessarily come out dry and flavorless. The outcome depends on the cooking technique and the specific recipe used. Properly cooked poultry in the microwave can retain its moisture and flavor.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    For quicker thawing, wrap frozen poultry in a

    Correct Answer
    tightly closed plastic bag
    Explanation
    Wrapping frozen poultry in a tightly closed plastic bag helps to expedite the thawing process. The plastic bag creates a barrier that prevents air from circulating around the poultry, which can slow down the thawing process. By tightly closing the bag, it also prevents any water or moisture from seeping into the poultry, which could affect its texture and taste. Overall, using a tightly closed plastic bag ensures that the poultry thaws more quickly and maintains its quality.
