Recommended bacon, by Consumer Reports

“We’ve got the cure for finding the best bacon,” says Consumer Reports. “Whether you prefer turkey bacon, regular, or thick-sliced, we taste-test side by side to find out which bacon brand really brings the flavour.”

But remember to eat it in moderation. “Just two slices of pork bacon can have about 80 calories, 7 grams of fat (about a third saturated), and 200 to 400 mg of sodium. Turkey bacon cuts those numbers in half, but taste is cut, too, our tests show.”

Here is the Consumer Reports’ selection of recommended bacon. The maximum overall score is 100, and “Best Buy” models offer more value.
