A unique feature of Scan’s delicious pork, is that our pigs are flower-fed– we add Brassica napus seed (bright yellow flowers that produce oil-rich seeds that are one of nature’s best sources of Omega 3) to the feed of our pigs. This ensures that our tasty, flower-fed pork contains four times more Omega 3’s when compared to conventional pork. Since Scan pork is loaded with high quality Omega 3 fat, it’s exceptionally quick to prepare and stays juicy and tender any way you cook it.
