Bacon is practically a staple for many modern foodies, but unfortunately it’s extremely difficult (i.e. nearly impossible) to find Whole30 compliant bacon.
Whole30 bacon isn’t very accessible—you won’t find it at your local grocery store. You can ask at local butcheries or health food stores if they have any bacon with no sugar, but you may have to hunt around quite a bit.
Good news though – there actually IS a brand of bacon that is endorsed by the Whole30 program, from U.S. Wellness Meats! They actually created a sugar-free pork bacon specifically for Whole30 folks desperate for a bit o’ bacon.
U.S. Wellness Meats Whole30 Bacon
The U.S. Wellness Meats’ Whole30 bacon is completely sugar and additive free, making it compliant for the Whole30 program!
The U.S. Wellness Meats bacon is also Compassionate Certified pork, which is verified by a 3rd party to ensure that they are meeting specific standards related to how the pigs are treated.
The Compassionate Certification means that the animals are not given any stimulants, hormones or antibiotics. The animals can also go outside as often as they want and have full bedding, slotted floors, and no gestating crates.
Basically, they are treated as all animals should be – with respect and care. U.S. Wellness Meat is unique in their offering, providing ethically-raised, pastured, sugar-free bacon that is perfect for the Whole30 program! In fact, their meat is officially endorsed by the Whole30 program, so you know you’re in good hands!
Where to Find Whole30 Compliant Bacon
When it comes to finding Whole30 bacon, here are your options:
- U.S. Wellness Meats. U.S. Wellness Meats’s Whole30-Friendly Bacon lets you order online from the U.S. Wellness Meats website and have your bacon delivered to your door!
- Pederson’s Farms Bacon. Pederson’s Farms also offers a Whole30-friendly bacon that is available for online ordering from The Simple Grocer (which actually offers a collection of Whole30-compliant foods). You may also be able to find Pederson’s Farms bacon locally – check out their zip code search feature to find a nearby location.
- Try Prosciutto. Alternatively, if you can’t get your hands on that beautiful bacon, try going after prosciutto instead, since it’s much easier to find compliant prosciutto than bacon. You can even throw it on the oven and get it crispy like bacon!
