Fatty Pork one of the world's top ten most nutritious foods

Fatty pork is considered sacred grail for many pork lovers; after all, We know that excessive consumption of this particular meat can lead to health problems due to high fat content.

“After analysing more than 1,000 raw foods, researchers ranked the ingredients that provide the best balance of your daily nutritional requirements – and they found a few surprises.” BBC Future reported late last month.

 Pork fat was surprisingly at 8th place (nutritional score of 74 points) because of "a good source of B vitamins and minerals". It was also praised as "unsaturated and healthier than lamb or beef fat."

The other items that made it to the list of top 10 most nutritious food:

Ocean perch
Flat fish
Chia seeds
Pumpkin seeds
Swiss chard
Pork fat
Beet greens

A lot of people think it's hard to believe, but a Singaporean nutritionist agrees with the results and said that the pig fat is rich in oleic acid and contains 60% monounsaturated fat.

“Monounsaturated fat and oleic acid are beneficial to our heart, arteries and skin. It can regulate our hormones as well.”

"However, excessive consumption of fatty pork will lead to obesity, so it’s best to eat it with vegetables. Boiling or stir frying it is recommended,” she said.
