Pork is as Lean as Chicken

Did you know that pork is as lean as chicken? People often consider chicken breast to be their only lean choice. However, pork tenderloin is as lean as boneless skinless chicken breast. Six common cuts of pork contain 5 grams of fat or less, per 100 gram raw serving, according to Canada’s Nutrient Data Files 2007. In fact, there are a variety of pork cuts that are leaner than boneless, skinless chicken thigh. Today, all fresh trimmed pork cuts, except ribs and bacon, are considered lean. Some of these cuts include pork tenderloin, pork loin chops, pork rib roast, pork shoulder blade and pork sirloin steaks. For recipes containing these cuts visit www.ontariopork.com/recipes.
