Protein is important for muscle building and maintaining healthy body tissues. Pork is considered as another white meat as pork tenderloin has smaller amount of fat than a chicken breast, while pork fillets has fewer than half the fat content of beef fillets. Pork has high thiamine (vitamin B1), and an excellent source of riboflavin (vitamin B2), pyridoxine (vitamin B6), cobalamin (vitamin B12), and Niacin (vitamin B3 or nicotinic acid). Pork is also rich in minerals like iron, zinc, selenium and phosphorus.
