How Many Carbs in Bacon?
Every carb counts when you're following Keto or a low carb diet. With bacon, the amount of carbs will depends on the brand and if the bacon is cured. So, read those labels!
For instance, most brands of uncured bacon will have zero carbs, while a lot of cured brands have 1 carb per 2 slice serving. That's because sugar and other "carby" ingredients are usually used during the curing process. Though cured is still low carb, by choosing uncured bacon, you are able to save those few carbs.
Tips for Making Perfect Bacon on Keto:
- Choose bacon that is organic when possible. Organic bacon means no chemical additives or GMO ingredients were used during processing.
- Look for bacon that is labeled center cut. This bacon comes from the leaner and more meaty section of the pork belly.
- Standard bacon slices are usually cut to 1/16 of an inch. That is a great thickness for breakfast and burgers. However, you may want to consider thick cut bacon, which is usually about twice the thickness of standard cut, when making soups and sauces because the pieces tend to hold together better.
- If you're tired of a greasy stovetop, try this method for baking bacon in the oven on a rack.
