It might not be worth it.
Those pricey “natural” and “organic” hot dogs often contain just as much or more of the cancer-linked preservatives nitrate and nitrite as that old-fashioned Oscar Mayer wiener.
“If you actually surveyed consumers going out of their way to buy no-nitrate products, they’d be very surprised to learn that there’s plenty of nitrates in there,”

What colour is macaroni cheese over there? Here it's pale yellow...because it contains cheese. Why do they feel they need to put colourings into something that is practically white anyway? I'm shocked at the difference in food standards in the US to the UK. We've got the slight problem of 'uh-oh' wrong meat again syndrome but many products are free from artificial colours and flavourings. I don't trust the FDA one bit!
Everything in moderation is good for the health. That is the general rule of thumb for cooking in our house. We try to avoid processed food as much as we can for the most part.

Along with all of these good things people are saying - my 2 cents - I hope everyone is using butter and not using "margarine".
Also, look into coconut oil - instead of others - olive oil is good.
I'm 50 years old - remember the big vats of crisco lard? and Tang? OMG
