      The Good

      • No Nitrates or nitrates added
      • No fillers
      • No added antibiotics or hormones
      • All Natural

      The bad and the ugly

      • High in Saturated fat. Daily value for Saturated fat is about 20g, one hotdog puts you at 7g, about 35% of your daily value!
      • Watch the sodium; about 19% of daily value; keep sodium under 2400mg (FDA suggestion)

      As an alternative to the regular, concession stand hot dogs, that my boys used to love :/, I look for the All natural, Uncured, no nitrates or nitrates added and no preservatives hot dogs.  I like the Trader Joe’s Uncured All Beef Hot dogs and my boys just love them. Add the Organic Alpine Valley Hotdog Buns, and you get a delicious snack or lunch!  (I will keep this hot dog snack to a minimum primarily because of the sodium and saturated fat.)

      Note:

      Most of the concession stand hot dogs contain processed meat, preservatives such as sodium nitrite and nitrite. All of these possible contributors to nitrate-congaing chemicals believed to cause cancer! (see my post on nitrate for more information)

       

      INGREDIENTS:

      Beef, water, 2% or less of allspice, celery juice powder, evaporated cane syrup, garlic powder, ginger, honey, lactic acid starter culture, mustard, nutmeg, onion powder, paprika, pepper, sea salt.
