    Gravlox

    Primal Fuel
    Are gravlox primal? 1 part salt to part sugar and fresh dill. Cured at least 2 days in the fridge Does the sugar exempt them from being primal?


    Thanks

    It's always seemed perfectly primal to me. Sugar in a cure makes for a *very* small amount of sugar in the meat, well within the 100-150g (and even 50g) per day.

    Hmmm, my girlfriend makes gravlax every year around Christmas time, never uses sugar though. Salt, white pepper and dill.

    If that's not primal, I don't know what is. Now eating it on rye bread with margarine, OTOH....
