should Infused Pork be cooked?
Infused Pork can be cooked by all the same
methods you would usually cook pork: pan fry, grill, BBQ, roast,
stir fry, etc. Cooking is even easier with Infused Pork, as the
tender and juicy meat means it's harder to overcook and dry
out. Suggest your customers try it on the BBQ for guaranteed
the sodium (salt) level?
The nutritional profile of Infused Pork is similar to other fresh,
lean pork, with the exception of the addition of sodium and
phosphate. The sodium content in Infused pork makes it a "moderate
sodium" food and is very comparable to other foods (please refer to
your supplier for actual sodium level if required). Suggest to
customers they have the choice whether to add more salt at cooking
or the table. In fact, a normal sized packet of chips
contains more salt than over 2kgs of MI pork.

Infused Pork can be successfully included in rissoles and
sausages for additional sales. However, given the added
ingredients, Infused Pork cannot be added to mince.
