Pork less fatty than Chicken

‘Tis a sad reflection of the state of pork when considering the following:

Pork recently took the lead over its main competitor, chicken, in the battle to be the leanest white meat.

An analysis by the U.S. Department of Agriculture showed that a 3-ounce piece of pork tenderloin had 2.98 grams of fat while a 3-ounce skinless chicken breast contained 3.03 grams of fat.

In an unofficial analysis completed in a household of 3 in Seattle, it has also been found that the newer, leaner pork “tastes like salted carboard”.
