    US Wellness Meats has pork and beef bacon. Both are nitrate and sugar free. And they use sea salt.

    It matters because if someone is avoiding all refined sugar then that would include a few grams. For some people sugar is like crack, you wouldn't say " I'm going to quit smoking crack, well except for the few grams..." To quit refined sugar is hard, and consuming sugar makes it harder.

    This is what I say to my wife who thinks I'm a bit too extreme at times.

    Her: "Just do everything in moderation".
    Me "Oh yeah? Does that Include heroin?"

    It's kinda hard sometimes to get people to even believe that you could even possibly have a food addiction.

    The only reason to avoid sugar at that level of a few grams is because the taste sets off your appetite or further sugar cravings. However a piece of bacon with like 1g of sugar is not going to send any signals because you won't even be able to taste it. Its negligible most likely. Look at the nutrition label.. it probably says 0 carb. Potentially is rounded down but still. You are concerned about an issue that only exists in your head.

    I will give you side by side bacon made with 1-2g of sugar and one without. You think you can tell me the difference? Are you going to binge on sugar because a piece of BACON?

    When the Nutrition Facts panel says the food contains “0 g” of something, it means the food contains less than 0.5 grams of PER SERVING. It's safer to assume 0 on a label means 5g or less. If you are avoiding sugar, any is unacceptable.

    It's not the taste of/ lack of taste of the sugar. It's the absorption of sugar into the blood stream that creates the craving. If sugar is listed in the ingredients then regardless of the "0g sugar" on the nutrition it still has sugar. That sugar is likely .5g per serving. If 1 strip is .5 grams, and I want 10 strips, then my blood has just obsorbed 5 g of refined sugar. (And I have all this bacon in the fridge that I paid so much for and I'm going to eat it till it's gone.) Now for some people that doesn't mean anything. But for others, that 5 grams, can an will create more cravings for sugar. If you don't believe me, then quit eating all forms of sugar for 3 days, have a teaspoon of sugar and tell me if you don't want sugar again. I don't know how much more I can simplify this.

    You can buy pork belly and make your own. All it takes is cosher salt, whatever spices you want and a week or so of fridge time. You also need to keep it in the freezer.

    Your body requires glucose, there is a reason you crave sugar.

    Interesting that you would think 10 strips of bacon is healthy but 5g of sugar is comparable to crack or heroin.

    glucose ≠ sugar used in bacon. You do not need to eat table sugar or corn derived sugar. There are far better ways to get the glucose your body needs. Also gluconeogenesis exists as a mechanism of getting this needed glucose in a non-carbohydrate environment.
