  1. That's not what I was trying to say, and I'm glad you see that now. If it was, I wouldn't have gone on to discuss how to make your own sugarless smoked salmon.
  2. I'm not disputing the fact that any food that lists sugar is not Whole30 compliant, and I don't know how you got that from my post. To clarify, manufacturers use sugar and salt and perhaps some spices and smoke flavoring to make smoked salmon, then rinse it off after a specified time. I'm sure the salmon does absorb some of the sugar. Hence the ingredients list shows sugar, as it should. The important point I'm trying to make is it's possible and very easy to make your own smoked salmon to completely avoid the sugar. I was also distinguishing the fact that the sugar listed was most likely
  3. Food manufacturers don't add extra sugar, it's the residual sugar from the curing process. I've made smoked salmon without sugar. It's not as good as with sugar, but it can be done. And it's really easy to make. Look online for a recipe. I use Wright's liquid smoke which has no additives. Since you won't be using sugar, I suggest curing for a shorter time followed by a very thorough rinsing. Good luck!
