Cold Meat

Hi there

I eat +/- 6 slices of sandwich ham per day, but just want to know what cold meat would be the leanest?

Dear Lyn
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).
