Ontario Pork, in cooperation with the Canadian Pork Council and Pork Marketing Canada, has developed a new nutrition brochure that provides tips for healthy eating based on Canada’s Food Guide. The key message is that pork tenderloin is as lean as boneless, skinless chicken breast; with many pork cuts being leaner than chicken thigh.
The brochure also features the Canadian Diabetes Association logo. Healthy eating for diabetes does not mean giving up traditional foods. By following healthy eating guidelines and being physically active, people with diabetes can still enjoy their favourite foods like pork, achieve target blood glucose levels and reduce the risk of complications.
