Today’s pork is 31 percent lower in fat, 29 percent lower in saturated fat and 14 percent lower in calories than pork produced 15 years ago. This is because pork producers in Illinois, and around the country, responded to consumers’ wishes for leaner cuts of pork. Today, pork producers are proud to provide consumers with six nutritious pork cuts that contain less saturated fat than a skinless chicken thigh. With an average of only 173 calories per 3-ounces serving, consumers can have their pork and eat it too!
