No, only meat with ALL fat trimmed off is free. Thats easy for most meat eg steak, even bacon or chops etc you can chop all the fat and stuff off and only eat the meat - but with mince, sausages etc you obviously cant do that as the fat is minced as well, so only EXTRA LEAN mince is free.

To qualify as Extra Lean it is has to have <5% fat ie less than 5g per 100g. SW sent a news article out a couple of weeks ago about it.

Here we go:

"Recent research has shown that extra lean lamb, pork and turkey mince is no longer readily available in supermarkets.

If you come across a Food Optimising recipe that uses one of these extra lean minces and you’re unable to get hold of it, we recommend that you ask your butcher to mince very lean meat for you (with no skin if it’s poultry) or you mince your own at home. This way you can guarantee it’s Free!

Our database currently shows that there are no packs of extra lean lamb mince available in UK or Irish supermarkets and only the following turkey and pork mince:

Tesco Healthy Living Pork Mince, chilled, 500g pack
Sainsbury’s Taste the Difference Free Range Turkey Mince, chilled, 500g pack

Fortunately extra lean beef mince is still readily available in all the major retailers

Also someone found out Tesco Finest Pork Mince is also free - linky
