dietBNI™ 140.91na: Cured meats (average), AUS / NZ, 2011.

This is the nutritional value of cured meats in New Zealand. It represents the average nutritional value of a sample of 21 sandwich-ready cured meats available in New Zealand and, probably, Australia in 2011. The sample was collected as part of a research on the nutritional composition of cured meats in New Zealand.

This nutritional profile (see figure below) can be summarised as being, mainly, biased towards excess of sodium, but also high in protein, fat and saturated fat, and low in carbohydrate, sugar and fiber.
