Hormel is a good brand if you are looking to reduce nitrates

Schneiders also has a small low salt boneless ham, I think it is 50% less,unsure. Many companies if you check do have low salt meats.

Foster Farms, Dietz & Watson and Boars Head all have low sodium turkey deli meat at deli counters. Sometimes I find Foster Farms No Salt Added chicken as well. It's a big difference - Deitz and Watson Low Sodium turkey is about 240mg vs 420mg for their regular roasted. It also tastes/looks more like turkey you would roast at home.

It is important to get the nutritional info.

I buy chicken or turkey lunch meats at times,they are healthier then others. I buy in small 2 ounce 1 serving packages. I do not buy them in the deli because in the deli I get no information on nutrition and in these small packages the slices are very thin and include 8 slices. It costs $1.00. This way if I want I can eat 1-2 packages a week maximum if I do not eat other foods with nitrates that week.

I heard the nitrates should be avoided too.

Yes- we have lower sodium lunch meat at our deli and in packages. The deli also has the nutritional value for the lunch meat. I do not eat meat but sometimes do buy it for events at work. I read the info on the packages before I buy most items.
Thanks for checking IOWADEB!

In my local grocery stores there is low sodium lunch meat in the deli that I do not see in the packaged meat section. Also. I use a lower sodium Swiss cheese. I will check back in on this subject. I need to do some checking. I hardly ever eat lunch meat .

I do not think there is any difference in the lunch meat. I have looked at the info about the meat and it seems to be very high in sodium.
I eat Swiss cheese because it is usually lower in sodium than some types. I check the packages for sodium content.

I know pre-packaged lunch meats are high in sodium. Is it any better in the ones you buy from the deli where they slice it up for you? Also, are there specific cheeses that are better for you than others? I'd really appreciate some input here!
