Bacon: calories, carbs, fats and other nutrients


Bacon is a salted or smoked meat product obtained as a result of specific fattening and keeping of pigs (bacon pig breeding). It represents the side of a young pig without the lower limbs, vertebrae, pelvic bones and sternum (flank). Smoked bacon is made from salted bacon. It is characterized by lean, juicy meat permeated with even layers of bacon. If you like bacon with a sweetish flavor, use Canadian smoked, and if bacon with a strong flavor, choose European varieties, for example, Italian pancetta.
