    Is ham synned?

    My consultant and other people at my group have mentioned about wafer thin ham being syn free, but Im a bit dubious as I would imagine the processed meat to have loads of rubbish in it.

    Thanks

    I think it will depend on the brand, so probably best to check individually

    Ham is free on Red and Extra Easy - see page 16 of your book.

    You must cut off all the fat. The better quality it is, the less likely that it is to have too many additives - meat that is called "reformed" does sometimes have syns because it needs something to stick all the pieces back together!

    (I have no idea what turkey ham is - the name doesn't make sense to me! It is either turkey or it is ham - it can't be both! And I don't eat anything from Bernard Matthews anyway, on principle.)

    Thanks for your replies. Im on EE. Ive only ever really seen the shops own brand of wafer thin ham. I have avoided it so far, but was thinking it might be something else to eat.
