prosciutto and chorizo at Aldi

Recommended Posts

 I know the topic is "sourcing good food "and for me "good" food means compliant plus affordable. today I found prosciutto at Aldi Appleton Farm brand. 3 ounces for $2.99 and the ingredients are pork and salt. I also found chorizo mild or hot 12 ounces Pueblo Lindo brand for $1.99 each. the ingredients are pork, water, Chili Peppers, less than 2% of salt, flavorings, paprika, vinegar, spice extracts (including paprika and annatto) and sodium nitrite.

I was so shocked to find complaint "lunch meat" at Aldi's! I'm not a regular shopper but knowing this would get expensive I decided to check them out to see if I could save a few bucks on some organic meat and produce and color me surprised about the prosciutto!

ALDI has lots of great organic stuff at amazing prices.  ALDI and Trader Joe's have the same parent company.  There's actually two different ALDI's in Europe (I think "Nord" and "Sud") and one is ALDI and the other Trader Joe's in the US.

I am confused. Is sodium nitrite compliant?

I really like Aldis. It can get too expensive to buy things if you don't have the room to store quantities of meat in the freezer and stuff. I have a very tiny condo with not much space so have to buy in smaller quantities which can get expensive.
