Pork Buyer's Guide

How to buy the healthiest pork at the grocery store.

Healthy Choices

Cuts like tenderloin, loin and sirloin from the middle section of the pig rival skinless chicken breast in percentage of fat, but have a richer flavor. Always trim visible fat from whichever cut of pork you choose.

Storage Tips for Pork

Refrigerate or freeze pork as soon as possible after purchase. If refrigerating pork, be sure to cook it or freeze it by the "Use By" date on the package, or freeze it. If freezing pork for longer than two weeks, wrap in heavy-duty foil, freezer paper or freezer bags to prevent freezer burn. Frozen pork should be defrosted in the refrigerator—never at room temperature—to prevent bacterial growth.
