What is Canadian Bacon?
Although a staple for many breakfast and brunch dishes like classic Eggs Benedict, Canadian Bacon often remains in the shadow of its more renowned American bacon counterpart. However, at Jones Dairy Farm, Canadian bacon is a crown jewel that we take immense pride in. If you’ve ever wondered what exactly Canadian bacon is, let us help clarify any misunderstanding.
What is Canadian Bacon, and how is it different from ham?
The term “bacon” in its name might cause some confusion, but Canadian bacon is a departure from traditional bacon slices. Unlike the conventional bacon derived from the pig’s fattier belly, Canadian bacon comes from the center of the pig’s back – the area housing the much leaner pork loin. Canadian bacon, which has an appearance and flavor more similar to ham, is typically cured then cooked during the smoking process. Canadian bacon comes from the back of the pig, the loin, which is very tender and lean. Ham comes from leg of the pig, which is less lean than the loin. Canadian bacon is often used for breakfasts, brunch, and lunch while ham is typically use for dinner meals.
What Makes Jones Canadian Bacon Superior?
There should be no surprise that Jones Canadian Bacon is crafted with care and quality. Jones Canadian bacon is made from only the most tender and premium center portions of fresh, never-frozen loins. Just like our dry-aged bacon, Jones Canadian bacon is naturally smoked using real hickory or cherrywood chips, giving it a robust and deeply satisfying flavor.
Fully cooked and certified gluten-free, Jones Canadian bacon seamlessly integrates into a wholesome diet, providing a flavorful alternative to traditional bacon that’s high in lean protein. In fact, a three-slice serving has only 60 calories but boasts an impressive 10 grams of protein while maintaining a 97% fat-free profile. Jones also offers All Natural Uncured Canadian Bacon, available in two package sizes (6 oz and 24 oz). It’s cherrywood smoked, made without sugar and features pork raised without antibiotics and vegetarian fed which means it’s made without the use of added nitrates or nitrites.
