What is Canadian bacon?

Canadian bacon is made from pork loin, which makes it much leaner than American side bacon, which is made only from pork belly. This gives Canadian bacon a different texture that is closer to a thick slice of ham than cured bacon most people are familiar with.

Jones Canadian Bacon is uncured, meaning no nitrate or nitrite are added.. Made with premium cuts of lean pork loin and naturally smoked over cherrywood chips, our Canadian Bacon slices have a full, rich flavor with a hint of sweetness for a distinct taste you won’t find anywhere else. Gluten-free with no MSG added, these flavorful slices are a great protein to add to your family’s meals.
