Our expert says:
It is difficult to say which type of ham contains the least fat, because the SA Food Tables list the fat content of ham as varying from 5 to 19%. Meats that you cook yourself like skinless chicken breasts has a low fat content of only 4g per 100g (4%) and lean corned beef contains 4.9g fat per 100g (4.9%). If possible use very thin slices so that you don't ingest too much fat or change over to other filling like tuna (0,8% fat)or fat-free cottage cheese (less than 1% fat = which comes in a tasty variety of flavours).
