    sugar free nitrate free bacon

    i can find the nitrate free bacon in my health food store, but it lists sugar as an ingredient. it also says 0 carbs, but i would prefer to eat mine w/o the sugar. are there any brands out there?

    I couldn't find any, but I found a brand called Wrights which I think is probably the best of what I'm going to found around here.

    Not that it really helps you, but I just wanted to pimp this bacon out.

    I have yet to find any without some sort of sugar. Based on the nutrition info though, it has to be a very minimal amount and I'm not willing to give up bacon for that. I mean.....c'mon.

    I would posit that the sugar contents are so trivial that they should be no cause for concern. Bacon on!

    Is it really "nitrate free" or is it just cured with celery or beet juice? Just curious, I've heard that "unsalted" bacon is not very good.

    I get nitrate free, uncured bacon at my local co-op. It comes from a local farm (I live in Seattle, shop at the Madison Co-op) so it won't do most of you any good (It's called Sunday Morning.) It lists honey as one of the ingredients, but in what must be a minuscule amount based on the ingredient list. What *amazed* me about this bacon was the perfume-like scent it had when I cooked it -- a really light, sweet, high note. Couldn't taste that perfume, but the bacon did seem a bit sweeter than regular bacon. It was my first experiment with uncured bacon, and I'm sold.
