Today’s dietary guidelines for adults recommend 10– 35% of daily energy (calorie) intake from protein, which is about 50 to 175 grams of protein for an adult consuming 2000 calories per day.  The average Canadian eats around 17% of energy from protein, suggesting most people could enjoy more protein-rich foods, like lean meat, for good health. By combining an appropriate portion of animal protein like pork with other nutrient-rich foods like whole grains, leafy vegetables, and fruits, including berries, at your meals is a simple way to create a healthy and satisfying meal.  Cuts from the loin, such as pork loin chops, loin roasts and tenderloin, are the lowest in fat and contain essential nutrients including thiamin, niacin, riboflavin, vitamin B-6, phosphorus, protein, zinc and potassium.
