Berkshire Pork

Juicy & Tender - "the best breed of pork"

Berkshire pork, is a heritage breed prized for it's juiciness, flavour, and tenderness. It is pink-hued and heavily marbled. Its high fat content makes it suitable for long and high-temperature cooking. The meat also has a slightly higher pH, according to food science professor Kenneth Prusa of Iowa State University. Increased pH makes the meat darker, firmer, and more flavorful. High pH is a greater determinant than fat content in the meat's overall flavor characteristics. The Japanese call it "Kurobuta" which means "black pig". They have bred the Kurobuta branch of the Berkshire breed for increased fineness in the meat and better marbling. Pigs' fat stores many of the characteristics of the food that they eat. Berkshire pigs are usually free-ranging, often supplemented with a diet of corn, nuts, clover, apples, or milk. (Wikipedia 2018)
