National Pork
Producers Council


Review by Debbie Mazo


National Pork Producers Council  
Suffering for years from a bad reputation for high-fat content, the pork in your grocer's meat section today is lower in fat and leaner than ever before. Nutritionally, today's pork also stacks up well when compared to other meat and poultry. To convince you even more, the National Pork Producers Council Website is here to let you know just how easily the "other white meat" can fit into your healthy lifestyle.

Neatly organized into categories for various audiences, the National Pork Producers Council Website is the place to be on the Net for "pork lovers, pork producers, and anyone who wants to learn more about pigs and pork". With everything from food and nutrition information to industry news to food fun for kids, you'll be in hog heaven in no time.

Experiencing doubts about having your pork and eating too? The National Pork Producers Council Website helps you separate fact from fiction when it comes to the nutritional lowdown on pork. In Consumer Info, check out Nutrition and Health, where you'll discover, for example, that today's pig yields a pork loin with 77% less fat and 53% fewer calories. If you want to choose only the leanest cut of pork, always select the tenderloin, boneless loin roast, and boneless sirloin chops.

At the National Pork Producers Council Website, the Recipe Files are full of ideas for all kinds of cooks. Whatever the occasion, you'll discover great cooking and entertaining ideas with selections like the featured recipe of the week, fun family recipes, seasonal recipes, and recipes for kids. In the Recipe Archive, you'll find main dishes like Mediterranean Pork Kabobs and Pork Tenderloin Stir-Fry. If you're a ribs fan, choices range from Barbecued Baby Back Ribs to Jamaican Jerk Ribs. Before you take out your roast pan, however, don't forget to check out the Cuts and Purchasing link for tips on selecting the best cut and buying the right amount.

Younger visitors can browse through the Food Fun for Kids section which offers various food-related activities like interactive climbing in the Food Pyramid Game and nutrition puzzles. Never visited a pig farm? Then, take a virtual visit and check out life on the farm for baby pigs.

From its quality selection of healthy pork recipes to its solid presentation of nutritional information about the other white meat, the National Pork Producers Council Website will ensure that you never see pork in the same way again.
