This is good to know, because I too have been baffled by the calories in pork loin. It's a great cut of meat -- so versatile and lean. I usually weigh it raw, divide that amount by the number of servings I end up with, and use the low calorie count listed on Spark for raw, lean, trimmed of fat.

I have been checking the USDA site.
Looking up boneless, very lean pork loin cuts (fat trimmed off) (Is this what you used??)
Looking up those that are injected with some water, salt, flavoring....

It looks like the info you share is correct.

The water and salt are what they injected as a preservative, and are the reason for the huge difference between their label and the listings for plain pork meat. The shrinkage from cooking will be primarily lost water, so won't impact the calories.

If you weigh it raw and track the calories from the raw weight, you should be right.

Afraid of a colonoscopy? Believe me - they are much less frightening than surgery and chemotherapy.

Colonoscopies allow polyps to be removed before they can become cancer, or let cancers be found before they are too widespread. If you are 50 or older, or have any symptoms, please don't let fear stop you from covering your butt.

Get checked!

It said pork, water, salt on the ingredients. It was fresh pork loin chops. I dunno perhaps weighing it raw will just equal the calories? so if I have 10 oz of raw pork it will still be the same amount of calories cooked? I dunno. I just have to weigh it before then.

This is tough for me too. I like pork loin and pork loin chops, but there are so many different calorie counts for them out there, I just pick a medium one and go with it. I'd like to know the calories by cooked weight; of course I realize this varies with each piece of meat, but at least something standard (that makes sense; calories raw doesn't) would help.

I have to agree with you that it doesn't seem right at all, especially when the Spark database (from the USDA if I remember correctly) lists out pork loin chops separable lean and fat raw at around 220 calories for 4 oz (4 oz roasted comes out around 225, so it doesn't lose an appreciable amount of weight in cooking).

I would have to speculate that they've injected the meat with salt water or some other solution as a preservative or marinade, which will come out while cooking (which would give you around 2.3 oz cooked for that 130 calories). Was there anything listed in the ingredients other than pork?

Sorry I'm no help - all I can do is agree that something is just not right there!

That is a pet peeve of mine. Why do they put the raw calories on the package. Who on earth eats raw meat? Hopefully the new dietary labeling will help.

Sorry that I am not much help.

Made it to my maintenance weight of 125 pounds.

Even though I have reached goal. I still don't know everything about weight loss.

I bought these pork loins from walmart. It says on the back that 4oz raw is 130 calories or so. How much is that cooked though? Or did I really just have 10 oz of pork loin for 325 calories? Just doesn't seem right. Thanks for any help.
