Pork. The Other White Meat



Little Porky Pig has been keeping this fact a secret for quite sometime. He is not to happy with this research getting out to the masses!
This hardly seems like sound conclusive data. To merely claim that "x has less fat than y" immediately assumes several factors: equal food preparation in terms of trimming and seasoning/oiling, equal cooking procedures and equal post-cooked fat retention. In their raw states, nutritional information shows pork loin being well over 1 to 1 fat to protein content by weight, and cooked with still far greater fat content retained intramuscularly. Long story short: be skeptical of what food producer marketing researchers "discover."
