    I try to eat fresh no injected preservatives, yet almost impossible to avoid sodium nitrite if you like bacon...unless you want pancetta or salt cured bacon and ham

    If you're fine with eating bacon, like most people here, that turkey doesn't look all that bad.

    If could be worse and have maltodextrin and or something wheat derived in there.

    There is the fact that poultry in general has a very bad o6-o3 ratio and the fact that it probably being from an entirely grain-fed and CAFO animal wouldn't help things.

    But... It's still a way better option than eating, say, some packaged noodle dinner crap or the like.

    As I always say, eat the best you can afford to and the rest will come in time.

    WHY is there honey and sugar on meat? I don't get it!

    PS: Sodium Nitrate is also a RED FLAG.

    Exactly.

    It violates my first law -- only eat foods with one ingredient.

    One would assume it is honey turkey.

    Also sodium nitrate isn't necessarily a bad thing.

    Personally I think stuff like that tastes like saline solution, not meat. All deli meats taste about the same to me.

    If you buy a boneless turkey breast, cover it with water, and bring it to a simmer, then cook very slowly until the internal temperature reaches 160F (use a remote-reading thermometer), you will have the most wonderfully moist slicing turkey breast you could ever imagine.

    There's a world of difference between turkey breast and "turkey breast". Deli option is okay in a pinch but if you're designing a weekly routine, the cleaner/fresher option is effort well spent.
