Tips & Notes
Keep your pork tenderloin as lean as possible by trimming away any visible fat before cooking and selecting healthful cooking options, such as broiling or grilling, that don’t require the use of added fat.
Meat serves as one of the main sources of protein in the diets of many Americans, and choosing lean meats helps you boost your protein intake healthfully.
The University of Michigan Heath System highlights pork tenderloin as a lean-meat option, providing a lower-fat alternative to other cuts, such as pork chops or bacon. Consume pork tenderloin, and you’ll introduce more vitamins, minerals and other nutrients into your diet.
Pork tenderloin is relatively low in calories; a 3-ounce portion, with any visible fat removed, contains just 93 calories. Roughly three-quarters of these calories come from the tenderloin’s 17.8 grams of protein. You can use this protein to make hormones, as well as to maintain strong tissues.
Pork tenderloin also contains 1.8 grams of fat per serving, which accounts for 17 percent of its calories. Fat helps you absorb vitamins from your food and also provides energy you need to support your active lifestyle.
Eat pork tenderloin as a good source of the essential minerals selenium and phosphorus. Selenium helps regulate your metabolism by controlling the activity of thyroid hormones, and it also protects the cells that line your blood vessels from damage. A 3-ounce serving of pork tenderloin contains 26.2 micrograms of selenium, or 48 percent of the recommended daily intake. The phosphorus abundant in pork tenderloin helps control enzyme activity, makes up a component of DNA and contributes to strong bone tissue. Each serving contains 210 milligrams, which is 30 percent of your daily recommended phosphorus intake.
