Hey everyone! I wanted to know where I can buy deli turkey or other deli sandwich meats that are nitrite free? I've been able to find some packaged meats that are nitrite free in the Natural Food section of the grocery store but no deli style meats. Any help is appreciated!

Trader Joe's uncured meats are very good.

My grocery store carries the Applegate Farms brand. The hot dogs, bacon and deli meats (ham, turkey, chicken) are all nitrate free. These are gluten and casein free certified (food allergies in my family) so I haven't even looked at any other brands.

Check out your farmers markets this summer, especially the larger ones. I live near Rochester NY and the Rochester public market has local, small, sustainably farmed meat vendors who carry organic and natural choices. I found an organic all beef brand of hot dogs for my daughter at the local supermarket as well that contained no nitrates or nitrites and she loved them. They were expensive, but her health is worth the extra expense. I am a vegetarian, so it is very important to me that if my family is going to eat meat, they eat the most healthful options. Wish they'd go veg, but it's hard to explain to a 3 year old when her dad eats the stuff

Hormel makes a selection of deli meats that should be widely available at national grocery stores. It's called "Natural Choice", and it is free of nitrates. I wish they made hot dogs because my toddler and husband both love them. (And who am I kidding, so do I... :)

I was just going to say this! I don't care for lunch meat, but my DD loves turkey sandwiches. I won't buy any other lunch meat for her. I usually buy it at target because it's less there, but Safeway has it BOGO right now. :)

Thanks! I have bought the Applegate Farms brand but have only been able to find the bacon and hot dogs. I'll look around to find the sandwich meats. I'll also check out the Whole Foods and Farmer's Market.
