Often, when people mention pork dishes, a juicy rack of baby pork ribs smothered in barbeque sauce comes to mind. If you have diabetes, such dish is definitely not an option. Nevertheless it doesn’t mean that all pork dishes are off-limits for diabetics. In fact, it’s all about the cut you choose. Some cuts of pork, such as tenderloin, sirloin or chops can be as lean as skinless chicken breast.

A 3 Oz serving of pork tenderloin contains approximately 21 grams of protein, 1 gram of saturated fat, 3 grams of fat, and only 120 calories. Besides, pork meat has a high content of Vitamin B1, which is great for diabetics because they’re usually low on it and pork can help people recover from Vitamin B1 deficiency.

So, moderate consumption of pork is not only safe for people with diabetes, but also provides certain benefits. To make sure your pork dish is diabetes-friendly, get the right cuts of meat and also cook dishes that don’t contain much or any carbs.

Here are some of our favorite pork dishes:
