Dear Lyn
I do not think that there is a significant difference between the nutritional content of sandwich ham or cooked ham, unless one of these 2 varieties of ham contains textured plant protein which would lower the energy, total fat, saturated fat and cholesterol contents and increase the dietary fibre content. If you purchase either one of these hams in sealed packets which display the list of ingredients on the label, you will be able to see if the ham contains any ingredients besides pork meat, spices, preservatives, flavourants, etc. The SA Food Tables do not list nutritive values for sandwich or cooked ham, only for sliced, canned ham where the regular product contains 744 kJ per 100 g and the lean product contains 532 Kj per 100g.
