    I can look at trader joes, and yes it has nitrates in it the reg kind I am eaitng and I know that isn't good for you at all but I need to finish it up, I can't waste it lol

    good to know Maurile but I am sure the one that says "Uncured" is better for you right?

    I do love my bacon! I was eating turkey bacon and then I heard on the news it is way worse and more sodium then reg bacon! xoox Darlene

    PG, you reminded me of something I have been forgetting lately. Number 1 rule of PB if grok couldn't make it, don't eat it. Turkey's don't have a fatty belly to make bacon from, so I don't see how (or why) grok would try to make turkey bacon. Turkey jerky, OK, turkey pemmican, OK. But strips of things that look like bacon, why bother.


    As for salt/smoke cured bacon, I can see why a progressive grok would attempt that. But he/she didn't have the modern chemicals they put in now. I think it is better to go with the less processed kind.

    It's grandma, but you can call me sir.

    If you are eating a slice or two every couple of days, that amount of sugar isn't going to hurt a gnat. For that matter, probably the nitrates, too.


    It's not only WHAT but HOW MUCH. Don't eat a pound in one sitting.

    I've read really mixed things about nitrates and the effect on our health. Not sure the amount we eat really is "bad" for you - especially when we get naturally occurring nitrates in food. The moderation comment seems appropriate here. Enjoy that bacon!

    AT22, that's realistic.


    If one can get nitrate/sugar free bacon and it's in the budget, by all means. But if not, and infrequent, there are far bigger health issues to be concerned about.

    Great, PG! I treated myself to real bacon this AM instead of turkey type. Yum.
