Does anyone get bloated from bacon and/or sausage?
I love me some bacon and sausage ya'll but ....Does anyone else find it bloating? I have been eating a good portions of emu sausage and nitrate free organic bacon. I feel really bloated..or maybe it is all of the kale I am eating! I know that sodium in the meats can cause water retention.
I wouldn't have thought it's the meat. Sausage is often made with rusk (bread crumbs) to bind it.
I wouldn't be surprised really. Although I don't get that affect, sausages and any processed meats are filled to the brim with salts. Even it it is nitrate free. I doubt its a break crumbs though, unless you've got a problem with digesting gluten.
These are emu sausages are local unprocessed meat and raw packed so there are no bread crumbs but not sure about salts! The bacon though ..I am gonna guess has a lot of salt.
