Hormel has come out with a new line of all natural meats, bacon, ham, turkey, roast beeg, cut chicken breast etc. that is all natural NO bad ingedients no preservatives no nitrates etc.!!! If your like me you quite looking a bacon years ago. A lady pointed it out to me & said it's been out for months???! Walmart carried it here and I am in a small town so should everywhere!![

      Do people who have problems with bacon, ham, etc. also have problems with spinach, lettuce, or celery? I've been doing research on nitrites and nitrates, and we get a higher concentration of those two substances from those particular vegetables than we do from cured meats. One of the ironies I came across pointed out how hotdogs "cured" with nitrates and nitrites cannot be labelled organic, but hotdogs flavored with celery juice, which has a higher concentration of those two things, can be labelled organic. I haven't had any issues with lettuce, spinach, or celery, so I'm thinking if they have more of that stuff than bacon, maybe I can try that soon.

        it is my understanding the nitrates and nitrates are too different thing, i maybe wrong but we checked on this at one point,it's been awhile.

        secondly things that occur natrually in foods are digested easier then something added. IC diet here says to avoid, ham etc. this one say some bacon may be ok, however the ICA guide says to avoid all processed meats with nitrates etc. added, MSG is another one often added to meats that cause problems.

        I personally can not handle preservatives, additives etc. so finding this meat etc. had been a great blessing~!!!

              Do these have spices that are ok for us too?
              That would be so cool to have meats that are ok both in the preservative issue & the spice one too

                  I buy the Hormel lunch meat and the nitrate free bacon at my regular grocery store. If you have Costco in your area they sell nitrate free bacon also.
