Nourishment Notes

Pork Tenderloin

Pork tenderloin is an excellent source of lean protein and provides key vitamins and minerals like thiamin, selenium, niacin, vitamin B6 and phosphorus. Protein is especially important for those with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis because it is essential for the healing process and protein needs are often increased during a flare.
