Is there a difference between organic and conventional pork?
There is no difference, from a nutritional or food safety standpoint, between organic and conventionally raised pork. All pork is inspected by by the USDA to ensure safety. The only difference is how the pig is raised and processed for meat. Organic pigs are often raised outdoors and typically don’t receive antibiotics. Conventionally raised pigs often live inside cooled/heated barns and, if needed, can receive antibiotics for the betterment of their health, prescribed by a veterinarian.
