Today's pork is leaner than ever. Did you know that pork is 16% leaner than it was only 15 years ago?
Its amazing: Today's pork tenderloin is just as lean as a skinless chicken breast.
Also, pork packs nutrients in every lean serving. A 3-ounce portion of pork tenderloin, for example, is an "excellent" source of protein, thiamin, vitamin B6, phosphorous and niacin, and a "good" source of potassium, riboflavin and zinc, yet contributes only 6% of calories to a 2,000 calorie diet.
