Pork loin is a meat cut from hindquarter of pork. It may contain the tenderloin (of which the head is cut from the leg) and the neck. Pork loin is often separated along the backbone in two parts. The back fat is usually removed before it is sold. Without the outer fat layer the meat of pork loin has only 5% of fat.
