Potassium, which helps maintain blood pressure.
Phosphorus, which affects the maintenance of bones and teeth.
Zinc, which helps protect cells from oxidative damage.
Iron, which helps the cognitive development of children.
Vitamin B1, which influences the normal functioning of the heart.
Vitamin B3, which decreases the feeling of tiredness and fatigue.
Vitamins B6 and B12, which strengthen the immune system.
And what percentage of fat does it have?
Pork contains very little percentage of fat. In addition, 70% of the fat is subcutaneous, implying that it can be easily removed. In total, the percentage of fat in a proportion of 100g is 2.65:
– Polyunsaturated fatty acids of 0,65.
– Monounsaturated fatty acids of 1,1.
– saturated fatty acids of 0,9.
