Important Things to Remember when Choosing Bacon or Meat Products:

Hey guys! In this video we are going to talk about bacon and how to read label because I get a lot of questions on what kind of bacon do I consume and what do I look for when I’m reading the label. Well, the first thing is what you should do is go to the farmers market because they always are going to have a higher quality but if you can’t get there, I’ll show you a couple other things to look for. First of all when it says all natural that means absolutely nothing. Okay so ignore that cause that’s just a joke – all natural versus like what? Is it not natural? Artificial Pork? Okay next one raised without antibiotics, this is funny because they’re trying to differentiate their brand from other brands that have antibiotics but that’s not true because it’s not allowed to give pigs antibiotics anymore so they’re all without antibiotics. This one is important, no nitrates. You don’t want to consume bacon with nitrates, this can lead potentially to cancer. So we want to avoid that. When it says never fed animal by-product, now first of all you’re probably thinking like what do you mean animal by-products what’s that. That’s actually waste products from other animal like chicken crap and cow waste. Yes, they do add that into some of the feeds so this would be an important thing to have on the label because you don’t want to consume animal products that have been fed waste of other animals. Okay next one, all vegetarian-fed that sounds really healthy like the pigs are getting vegetables right? No, they’re actually getting GMO corn and soy. That’s what they’re being fed so what you really want to see way more important than this is if it’s organic because if it’s organic, the feed even if it’s grains must be certified organic. Now you might say “well, aren’t pigs fed grass?” well, they are different than cows, they don’t have a four stomachs like a cow, they have like one stomach like us and like chickens. They require more energy dense foods. So you’re not gonna find a pig farm that actually feeds pigs just grass, they do feed them grains. The key thing is to make sure those grains are non-gmo. Again, the farmers market, that’s the way to go. But if it says it’s organic according to the USDA, it’s fed non-gmo actually they have to let the pigs out
