Apparently pork belly is considered the holy grail for pork lovers according to worldofbuzz.com
For me I could eat the crackle and leave the pork. Now this is good news to me. Lets see why.
A study published by BBC recently, pork fat has been crowned the eighth most nutritious food on the planet! they say it is more unsaturated and healthier than lamb or beef fat. Also, it is a good source of B vitamins and minerals, which are vital for our human body.
A nutritionist from Singapore (no name) says pork fat is actually rich in oleic acid and contains 60 per cent 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.
I am sure she is right but Moderation is probably in order I would say.
