Where To Buy Bacon

Figuring out where to buy the best bacon can be a hard process (believe me, I know). There are a lot of choices out there to find the best bacon to buy, but I will break it down for you and help you to understand your options for buying the best bacon.

If you are very price-conscious and not interested knowing where you can truly find the best bacon to buy, then stop reading and take a trip to your local grocery store. But if you truly want to find where to buy the best bacon, then pleas continue reading.

Personally, I like to choose butcher shops that both have a nice wide variety of bacon and bacon flavors, sell bacon with a good amount of meat on it, and that have won awards for their bacon. These are often the best places to buy bacon because you know you are getting a high quality product.

There are many places to buy bacon online, but just like anything else you buy it pays to do your research. Some butcher shops sell directly online which is awesome, but their sites are often challenging to navigate and shipping costs extra.

Ordering bacon online is often not cheap and can feel too expensive. Look for a store that offers free shipping as those are the ones offering greater value and are less expensive than stores offering lower cost products with added shipping charges when you check out.

Available at some grocery stores and online, the Vande Rose Farms bacon is essential to mention for its top ratings across many publications and taste tests. This Iowa-based group sources heritage Duroc breed pork (known for its flavorful meat and natural marbling) from several farms. They use vegetarian feed and hand-inspect each animal to ensure ideal weight and size. After processing, the bacon is dry-cured for six days and smoked for 12 hours over applewood chips. While the ingredients do contain sodium nitrite and sodium erythorbate (for accelerated curing and color development), the company's process shows this is not a "pumping" method. Is this the best nutrition profile when it comes to calories and fat No. But based on dozens of #1 rankings, combined with only 260 milligrams of sodium per serving (which, at 33 grams, is two to three times larger than some other brands), this pick is the perfect example that calories aren't everything.

Applegate is a brand that prides itself on natural and organic meats, with 100 percent vegetarian diets for their animals and humane farming methods. This bacon contains no fillers, no GMO ingredients, and no chemical nitrates or nitrites. Remember, celery powder is still naturally high in nitrates. The low calories for a two-slice serving is a major plus if you like plenty of slices for breakfast, but mind the 310 milligrams of sodium.

This Target brand bacon has reasonable sodium levels, but slightly higher levels of fat than other brands. The ingredients do contain curing accelerators and color development enhancers, nitrites and sodium phosphates to retain moisture. So, nutrition-wise this option isn't bad, but the ingredient list does reveal that this brand uses shortcuts in its production methods.

Smithfield is the largest pork producer in the world (now owned by a Chinese company) so it's no surprise they have a wide variety of bacon products available. This pick doesn't contain added nitrates or nitrites, but does use celery juice which naturally contains the same compound. You'll find turbinado sugar and sea salt on the ingredient list, which may sound fancier but it's still just sugar and salt. At 100 milligrams of sodium and only 80 calories per serving, this is one of the better nutritional picks of the bunch. Smithfield's current practices may not align with your personal philosophies, but they do claim to be working toward certain sustainability goals outlined in a 2018 sustainability statement.

This thick-cut bacon is almost double the weight of other brands and contains substantially more sodium. At 110 calories for two slices, be mindful of how much yo
