Ground pork is meat from a pig that has been ground (I know. Duh.). This meat selection is generally derived from pork butt but can also include trimmed ends of a loin. It is usually about 15% fat (this fact isn’t labeled in stores, where ground beef is), but sausage grade ground pork can be up to about 30% fat. As with any ground meat, I find ground pork to be very versatile and a great staple in a Paleo diet (AIP and otherwise!). Nutritionally, ground pork is a great source of B vitamins as well as the dietary minerals phosphorus, zinc, and selenium; it is also a good source of a variety of fats. Pastured pork is going to be a much richer source of vitamin and minerals, so always opt for that if you can!
When it comes to responsibly-sourced meat, I almost always buy from US Wellness Meats!
