What's Removed From Spam To Make Spam Lite?
By Kaliga Rice
Spam has a long and interesting history dating back to 1937, and while it was often used out of convenience, it has become beloved by many for its versatility. For the past seven years, its sales have been growing, with up to 15 varieties of Spam now available, including Spam Lite.
Spam is made of six ingredients — pork with ham, salt, water, potato starch, sugar, and sodium nitrate, and a single serving of it provides roughly 15 grams of fat and a third of the daily amount of sodium. Spam Lite tastes the same, but has 33% fewer calories, 50% less fat, and 25% less sodium.
If you enjoy the salty, ham-like flavor of Spam Classic but don't want the extra fat and sodium, Spam Lite is a perfect option. It helps you cut down on the intake of fat, calories, and sodium, and still enables you to prepare a great meal in an endless number of ways.
