Fueling Your Plate and Body
Pork delivers protein and nutrition you can feel good about to fuel your plate and body.
The National Pork Board has responsibility for Pork Checkoff-funded research, promotion and consumer information projects and for communicating with pork producers and the public. The Pork Checkoff funds national and state programs in consumer education and marketing, retail and foodservice marketing, export market promotion, production improvement, science and technology, swine health, pork safety, and environmental management and sustainability.
Fueling your body has never been more important as people are continually questioning the information they get, which diet to follow, and how much protein they should eat or where it should come from. In an age where the latest food fads often create confusion and uncertainty, pork provides balanced nutrition in a protein that offers authentic experiences and flavors, and it has the unique ability to bring people together by fueling the plate.
When compared to other protein foods, pork is a nutritional powerhouse providing nine essential nutrients in just one 3-ounce serving. Pork is a high-quality protein source, providing all the essential amino acids needed for growth and maintenance, which plays an increasingly important role in muscle maintenance and weight management. Plus, it’s low on calories. A 3-ounce serving of pork tenderloin has 122 calories. You can feel good knowing that pork provides much of what your body needs to perform at its best.
