Is There Any Healthy Sausage?
Our favorite healthy sausage is turkey or chicken sausage, but you have a lot of options out there. When choosing a healthy sausage look for a sausage that contains less than 450 mg of sodium per serving. It’s also important to look for a sausage with the highest possible percentage of meat. The ideal ratio is a sausage with over 90% being meat, and the minimum should be 85%. It’s also important to select a sausage with less than 8% saturated fat.
