Bacon is beloved but it's not health food. Just two slices of pork bacon can have about 80 calories, 7 grams of fat (about a third saturated), and 200 to 400 milligrams of sodium. Turkey bacon cuts those numbers in half but taste is cut too, our tests show. Bacon comes in regular and thick-sliced uncooked bacon, precooked bacon, and turkey bacon. If you're looking for information about bacon, Consumer Reports is your best resource. Consumer Reports’ unbiased bacon reviews will give you honest buying advice that you can trust.
