Pork FAQs

What does the term "natural pork" mean?

By Bob Oros

All fresh meat qualifies as "natural." Products labeled "natural" cannot contain any artificial flavor or flavoring, coloring ingredient, chemical preservative or any other artificial or synthetic ingredient; and the product and its ingredients are not more than minimally processed (ground, for example).

All products claiming to be natural should be accompanied by a brief statement which explains what is meant by the term "natural."
