Powerhouse of Nutrition
Containing many essential nutrients required to optimize growth, development and repair of the body, pork makes a valuable contribution to a healthy, balanced pattern of eating.
The POWER OF PROTEIN
Protein is vital to every cell in the body. Protein repairs body tissues, builds enzymes, hormones and muscles, supports the immune system, regulates chemical reactions in the body, helps form blood cells and provides energy.
Pork has all the essential amino acids or ‘building blocks’ needed for optimal health.
When compared to pork, most plant proteins are not as well digested and/or have limited amounts of one or more of the essential amino acids. Legumes, however, contain fibre and complex carbohydrates, making them a great alternative to rice and pasta to create a balanced meal.
