    Was just wondering if anyone has managed to find a 0 carb gammon joint or ham slices
    Every joint or packet of ham i have picked seems to have dextrose or the likes in it, are these actually ok to eat on atkins.

    I think the bigger problem is nitrates used to preserve the gammon? Someone with more experience will be along soon...

    Yes it is a problem when they use dextrose as part of the curing process, it should only be tiny amounts though
