Boston Butt nutritional information

Recommended Posts

Question for the calorie counters out there.....What are you guys/gals using for the calorie makeup of slow 'n' low pulled pork without sauce?  I'm having trouble finding a consistent value as all the 'normal' sites seem to vary widely (I assume because they're either quoting raw meat, or ready made pulled pork with sauce added.

 

The best I can find is from the USDA website but it's quoting raw meat "Boston butt), blade (steaks), separable lean and fat, raw", the values look a bit strange compared to the like of My fitness pal "Pork, Boston Butt roast",     i'd expect raw meat to have more fat etc rather than less!

 

                     USDA                            MFP
 

Calories       211                                270

Protein            20                               23

Fat                   14                               19

The question is really why? Who cares? 

 

I know there are calorie counters out there and you might be one of them but........ I don't eat pulled pork enough to worry about it. I don't count calories but if I did the once or twice a month I eat pulled pork it's just not worth worrying about. Sometimes it's all about flavor not about health. 

 

Health - - - That's what the other 5 or 6 days a week are for.

People tracking macros and calories are the ones who want to know. 
OP, for pulled pork (no visable fat eaten) I use :
71.4 calories per 1 OZ
7.7 g protein
4.3 g fat
0.0 carbs
