    Preservatives in store bought Kretschmar Ham. Ok for a 1 day meal?

    ingredients:

    Cured With: Water, Dextrose, Salt, Contains 2% Or Less of Potassium Lactate, Sodium Lactate, Sodium Phosphates, Sodium Diacetate, Sodium Erythorbate, Sodium Nitrite.


    Having dinner at my parents house tomorrow and this is the ham they bought. I really don't want to bring my own food to eat if I don't have/need to.

    Would having a few slices of this preservative laden mess do much harm?

    My opinion - no, unless you are allergic or sensitive in some medical way to any of these ingredients. Count this as part of your 20%, don't pig on it, and offer to bring/do the ham yourself next time around.

    Enjoy the company, and Merry Christmas!

    It's just one meal, it's not going to kill you or get you kicked out of paleo club. Eat up.
