Pork, salt, fat, and occasionally additional sugar give Bacon its distinct flavor. Because of its unmatched taste, meat is a popular choice and favorite. Bacon is made from the belly of a pig and is salt-cured and frequently smoked before reaching supermarket shelves. When cooked, much of the fat melts away and may be drained by placing cooked Bacon on a dish with a few paper towels heaped on top. Nitrates and nitrites extend the shelf life and improve the product’s appearance. Bacon is prepared differently in the United Kingdom and Canada than in the United States.
