“MORE ANTIBIOTICS IN WHITE MEAT OR DARK MEAT?” Concentrations of Antibiotic Residues Vary
between Different Edible Muscle Tissues in Poultry. In which muscles do antibiotic
residues concentrate the most? White meat, dark meat,
or both the same? And the answer is: white meat! Significantly more antibiotic residues
in breast meat compared to thigh. Those were the only two tested though. Even though the present study
found, you know, greater residue concentrations in
breast versus thigh muscle tissues, the possibility also exists that other
edible muscle tissues, like legs or wings, could have even higher levels.
