Looking for healthy turkey in the deli section. Not processed or at least low processing.

These brands look better than some others: Applegate Farms, Kretschmar, Boars Head.

Does the meat have to indicate if it's processed?

1. Applegate does make some that have no nitrates, but my suggestion...

do what I do and buy the pre-cooked (approximately 4-41/2 pound) turkey breast from Costco (under its own Kirkland brand). Reasonably priced and NO NITRATES!

Ingredients: Turkey Breast, Turkey Broth, 2% or less of sea salt, sugar. Thatís it!


I keep it in a glass air-tight container for up to two weeks in the refrigerator, carving off 3-4 ounces most days. I'm sure most would go through it more quickly. You can also refrigerate some and freeze the rest. Good quality.

2. I like that idea. Does it recover from being frozen? I don't eat much and would

 

need to freeze it.

3. I mentioned how little I eat and it keeps well for two week in refrig.

but I have frozen it (maybe a third immediately after opening it, and immediately freezing in a vacuum bag). It did well on thawing.

4. I will try it. By the way, did you just happen to have a photo of Costco's turkey? nm
