    It is difficult isn't it, I get my bacon from a local farm shop, it's smoked and nitrate free, but it's expensive, shockingly so Lyn.

    I get my bacon from tesco (i shop online) and when i click on the nutritional info, it says the bacon is 0 carbs but it has got nitrate or sodium nitrate in it. How does this effect anything if its zero carbs?

    Hiya. Every low carb book I've read advises not to eat meat containing nitrates as they're suppose to be very bad for you. i think they contain carcinogens(cancer-causing chemicals). As they're too expensive I'll take the risk, am a smoker anyhow.:rolleyes::rolleyes: lol
