Why Pork?

Did you know that eating 20-30g of protein per meal may help you feel fuller and more satisfied? Pork is packed with the essential amino acids, vitamins, and minerals that your family needs. For example, every 3 oz. serving of pork tenderloin provides 22g of protein.


Pork is a versatile, nutritious protein that fits into a variety of meal solutions to support an active lifestyle.


Eight cuts of pork meet the USDA guidelines for “lean,” and pork tenderloin is as lean as a skinless chicken breast.


For your heart-healthy protein choice, choose boneless pork sirloin roast or pork tenderloin, which are American Heart Association Heart-Check Certified foods.

Cooking Tip: Follow the recommended cooking temperature for the cut you’re preparing. The safe internal cooking temperature for fresh pork cuts is 145° F.
