Foster Farms Turkey Pastrami Review

Foster Farms Turkey PastramiEvery now and then I find myself craving something that might not be the most 'diet friendly'. Today, with the largest craving for a hot mile-high pastrami on rye with Swiss cheese and caramelized onions, I picked up Foster Farms Turkey Pastrami. Foster Farms poultry is always 100% natural with no added hormones or steroids, no artificial flavors, coloring, chemical preservatives or any other synthetic ingredient.

Unlike regular beef, this turkey pastrami neither shrinks nor becomes extremely pliable when heated. The taste is absolutely marvelous, and far superior to most pre-packaged and pre-sliced pastramis. It's spicy, salty, and even a tad smoky. The texture, however, will not fool anyone who's ever had pastrami into thinking that this is made out of beef. It has the fine grain that only dark poultry meat contains. Still, it made an amazing sandwich, if not a precise replica, and was far better heated than most lean and thinly sliced luncheon pastramis that I've sampled before.

One serving (2 ounces) of Foster Farms Turkey Pastrami contains 70 calories, 2.5 grams of fat, 1 gram of saturated fat (both of which are 5% of the RDA), 450 milligrams of sodium (19% of the RDA), and11 grams of protein.

My block cost $2.50, but as the size of the blocks vary, the price will as well. Pastrami is one product where the nutrition facts can vary wildly from brand to brand. A serving of Sara Lee Beef Pastrami has similar nutrition facts, but the sodium content is 25%. Foster Farms Turkey Pastrami is a good option if you don't eat beef, but as with most pastramis, the sodium content is rather high.
