I think it would only add sodium.

Whats in the brine?

If its just salt and water, its not going to add calories, but will certainly add salt.

If it has sugar in as well, its going to add some calories, I don't honestly know how you would calculate this though!

I never like to condradict what people write but in this case, from the research I did because We brined too, i was told that bring can add up to 1600mg of sidium. It depends on how much of product is exposed and how much salt is used. Just remember on a general note that your turkey wont absorb more that the brone solution. Once it is reached the same sodium level from absorption, it just quits. So time can also play a factor.

If your really worried, we inject our turkey therefore are able to know how much we put in it. This has worked wonderfully!

I have been brining the Thanksgiving turkey every year for probably 5 years and the family loves it! I was wondering if I should calculate extra calories for the brine that soaks into the meat. An y ideas? emoticon
