Update: I just got back from the store. This is what I was able to find out.
I grabbed a package of processed sandwich meat (turkey) in the lunch meat aisle then went to the deli to get my usual real meats.
The processed brand had all sorts of ingredients. The ingredients list was a mile long and it included nitrates. When I went to the deli to look at
the real meats, they weren't anywhere near as bad as the processed, packaged stuff. The ingredients weren't quite as short as 'turkey' but it was
like 'Turkey, turkey broth, and less than 2% of the following...' It was nothing bad. I did notice it has phosphates in it but fortunately zero
I did request organic, grass fed, no medicines, etc. but they didn't have anything like that.
So it's probably not the best but if you're going to go for sandwich meat, then I'd definitely go for the fresh meat at the deli than the horrible
Oscar Mayer-like stuff. I was looking at even the 'HEALTHY' processed meats that claimed things like 'low sodium' and 'low fat' but they were
still loaded with chemicals in the ingredients list.
