What are the leanest cuts of pork?

Many cuts of fresh pork are leaner today than they were two decades ago — on average, about 16 percent lower in total fat and 27 percent lower in saturated fat. Seven cuts meet USDA’s guidelines for “lean” or “extra lean.” An easy way to remember lean cuts is to look for the world “loin” on the label, such as loin chop or pork tenderloin.
