What nutrients are in pork?
Pork medallions are just as healthy as chicken breast*
* Both pork and chicken are naturally rich in protein. Protein helps muscle growth. This relates to pork loin and fillet medallions trimmed of visible fat and to skinless chicken breast.
Not only do they taste amazing but lean pork cuts such as pork loin medallions and pork fillet, trimmed of visible fat, are low in fat and saturated fat. These cuts are quick and easy to cook, and naturally rich in protein. Protein helps muscle growth and the maintenance of normal bones. A varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle are recommended for good health.
Lean pork is naturally low in salt and provides nine essential vitamins and minerals that contribute to good health: thiamin (vitamin B1), niacin (vitamin B3), pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), vitamin B6, vitamin B12, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, and zinc.
