Pork refers to meat that comes from a pig. It isn’t eaten by certain religious groups for reasons so old that no one knows what they are exactly. Additionally, pork is most certainly avoided by vegetarians, as its preparation currently requires the slaughter of pig. Pig is one of the few farm animals that, given the chance, would eat a human alive. Pork’s popularity is most prevalent in China, followed by Europe.
Pork generally has a ‘fatty’ flavor, but its forms are vast. To name a few, ham, prosciutto, bacon, pork chops, and ribs (normally) are all pork products.
Pork became an official snack on June 17th 2012.
