Default Asked 4 Butchers

For Bacon without sugar in it including organic Butchers and they all cured their bacon in Sugar.


Also with the sausages they all had Carbs which i'm not sure but would think its standard?

But sugarless Bacon just can't find anywhere to buy some

There might not be enough to stop you eating it. Why not buy a small quantity from each and see how much effect it has when you cook it? Then you could decide which butcher to buy from regularly, depending on taste and blood sugar levels afterwards.

Hey AnnC the one i been buying from Coles has like less then 1% Carbs per 100g and it don't spike me so they might not either but just thought since others are buying with no sugar i should buy that too, but yes not easy to find.

Regarding sausages i know a bloke who makes home mad but adds sugar and bread crumbs to them as they mostly all do but i asked him if i ordered i bigger quantity would he make them without sugar and bread crumbs, he said sure, so i'm thinking should i maybe buy some almond flour and give it to him to add instead of the crumbs or just leave it meat fat spices only? only asking as not sure how they would turn out, actually maybe even better as don't they just add bread crumbs to get more weight which makes more dollars.

bacon is pretty easy to make yourself. i have several friends that make their own. i've never had bacon spike me.

sausages are easy to make yourself too. bread crumbs are usually added as a binder to hold things together.

I actually buy uncured bacon and store it in the freezer. I'll have to look next time I buy it, but I don't think there is sugar in it. I do buy sausages that have a little sugar in them but I think it is only 1 gram. It is very difficult to buy 0 carb items. Also many things if they are under 1 carb may list it as 0. The important thing is to check your meter reaction.

When we grew our own meat, we just ground the pork & then added spices/seasonings if we wanted sausage. No need for crumbs or anything else - if you want it to hold together better in a pattie or a loaf, add egg to the mixture.
