Rose Canadian Bacon
Hi again everyone,
I have another product question.
I read somewhere a while back that canadian bacon is a great source of protein that is low fat. Soooooo, I've been eating it everyday. A few days ago, somewhere on the boards, someone mentioned that nitrates are bad for you. Welp. I looked at the nutritional label again on my Rose Canadian Bacon and... yep, there they are! *drat*
So, I'm hear to ask opinions/help again.
Here is the nutritional info:
Serving Size is 2 oz (4 slices)
1.5 Total fat
.5 Saturated fat
20 grams cholesterol
700 mg sodium (sigh)
2 grams carbohydrate
2 grams sugar
10 grams protein
Ingredients: fully cooked sliced canadian bacon water added, cured with water, sugar, salt, contains 2%or less of: sodium lactate, sodium phosphate, flavoring, sodium diacetate, sodium nitrate,
I buy this at Sam's Club because I use it so much and it's the least expensive brand I've found. But, my health is important as I learn about this stuff, I'm trying not to consider cost first. I get to come first (well, most of the time, anyway!).
So, is this good, bad, or evil for me?
Thanks so much!
