Oscar Meyer has some awesome "untreated" bacon. That shit is cut nice and thick (just the way Solly likes it).

It's only "uncured", "not preserved", "nitrate free" and "keep below 40 degrees" because of weirdo USDA labeling rules - it has the same amount of nitrate as normal bacon. Otherwise it would be gray.

USDA labeling rules are the same rules that allow I Can't Believe It's Not Butter spray to say that it is "Zero calories" even though it is made almost entirely from fat and water - anything less than .5 grams of fat can be labeled as having zero calories. Since a spritz of the stuff is less than .5 grams, they can call it calorie free.

Why do Applegate products say that they are "uncured"?

The USDA defines an uncured product as one that has been preserved without the use of synthetic sodium nitrite. Since Applegate uses the nitrites derived from celery juice and sea salt to cure its hams, bacon and hot dogs, the USDA requires our labels to say "Uncured" and "No Nitrites or Nitrates Added" to let consumers know that the product was not cured using the standard industry practice.

What is Applegate's opinion on eating meat that contains nitrites and nitrates?

Cured meats contain relatively low nitrite levels. According to the American Meat Institute, nearly 93% of the nitrites that we ingest on a daily basis are derived from vegetables and water. Less than 5% come from cured meats.
At Applegate we maintain a commonsense approach to food. Our philosophy is "Eat Less Meat, But Better Meat." We believe that a naturally cured product that is eaten in moderation, can be part of a healthful well-balanced diet.


Oh, and FYI - "nitrite" is the product of "nitrate" breaking down. Nitrates are time-delay nitrite. Celery powder is nitrate, which reacts with the acids in the bacon cure mix to break down into nitrite over time, producing a steady supply of ant-bacterial nitrite, which prevents spoilage.

eating that kind of bacon is like drinking o'doul's when you're in a mood for a beer. i am all for eating right but all these diets are just a fad and this seems to be the newest one. not picking on you personally solly but it's just how i feel about the matter.

Don't mean to be the diet police - it's just that the whole "uncured, no nitrates added" thing is a marketing scam - and a flat-out lie. And the "nitrates are bad for you, so don't eat cured meats" thing is bogus, too, since 93% of our nitrates come from eating veggies. Don't eat cured meats because of the fat and sodium, not the nitrates. The "avoid nitrates" message came from 40 year old research about how burnt nitrates can become carcinogenic, so they targeted foods where nitrate is added as an ingredient and didn't realize that most of our nitrates come from green veggies. It's like the story of how spinach is super high in iron. That comes from an 80 year old typo where they got the number a full decimal place off, and the spinach growers and food companies just ran with it.

You know me, we've talked long enough that you know the way I eat is not a fad. And btw, I could give you this bacon or another brand I eat and I guarantee you wouldn't know it's the "healthier" version.

Lulz found in that you are arguing about a "healthy" version of bacon.

You obviously know nothing about nutrition. Bring it to the right section if you'd like to have a debate.
