But, this is Kirkland, low sodium bacon. I just read the label: for a serving of 2 slices, it's 3 grams of carbs! But, not enough that I eliminate it from a low carb diet. It's low carb, not no carb. I noticed that there are more carbs in the low sodium bacon than in the regular bacon. Last time I did low carb, I wasn't worrying about salt.

I was, in fact, looking at American bacon (Costco) and it wasn't maple flavored or low sodium.

This wasn't maple flavoured or anything like that. I thought maybe they added more sugar, catering to the Quebec sweet tooth. But the ingredients list doesn't have any sugar or anything that should have carbs. Maybe our pigs have more carbs?

Maybe we can't really trust what it says in those nutritional panels

Just got home from the in-laws in NE S.D. Alot more snow there. Had to wear sunglasses all the way home, not from the sunshine, as there was none, but the glare from all the white snow & the white sky. Glad to get home, now what to make for supper.
