The other white meat! Pork comes in many cuts and varieties, and is eaten both freshly cooked and preserved. Like other meats, pork is a great source of protein, and is best for you when it's organic and/or grass-fed. Depending on the cut of pork, the fat content can be considerably higher or considerably lower than chicken (for example, bacon would be much higher while pork top loin would be lower). Compared to other meats, pork has a higher level of potassium, which helps lower your risk for heart disease, high blood pressure and certain digestive disorders.
