Hi, my name is Adam Hart,

Deli meat can be a convenient protein for many diets
like Keto, Paleo, low carb and low Fodmap,
but not all deli meats are created equal.
Here’s our top 5 list of what you should look for when reading labels:
Number 1
Look for Clean protein,
like Organic or Antibiotic Free Meat
Number 2
Ideally it’s low in sugar, especially refined sugars and artificial sweeteners
Number 3
Make sure it’s Preservative Free
to avoid unnecessary chemicals
like nitrites including celery extracts
Number 4
Additives, Fillers and GMO ingredients;
If you can’t pronounce it, don’t buy it.
There’s a good chance it can be harmful for your health.
Or better yet,
just search the name of the ingredient and “ask Google if it is good for you”
Number 5
Allergen Free;
reading labels is a good practise to better understand
what’s in food like common allergens
including gluten, soy and dairy.
You know, we’ve made a series of videos
talking about unhealthy preservatives found in deli meats,
how conventional farming negatively impacts our health
and that McLean Meats is committed to producing clean deli products
that are truly preservative free and allergy friendly.
