Thought sausages will always have animal fats in them...just a matter of how many %.

Anyway, it's still processed food....doubt anyone will declare it as healthy

Somehow, 'healthy' and 'sausage' don't go together in my mind! I would expect that something with less fat, salt and additives wouldn't taste as nice. For such foods, if I can't find a healthier alternative which tastes as good, I reduce the frequency and amount - eg. only 1 at a time, and maybe only once every couple of weeks.

Lower-fat sausages can be found in stores, ask your butcher, or the meat department at your supermarket for low-fat sausages, and check those nutrition labels. Heller's produces a 95% fat free beef sausage, for example. It has only 5g fat/100g

Think we have sausages only once every few mths. It is not only the fats that is a concern but the amount of sodium in them.

And no matter how, home made sausages never taste the same as store bought.

If I'm cooking sausages at home, I will buy them from a restaurant in Siglap/Katong area. It's a family owned German restaurant. There's no preservatives in the sausages. The chef prepared the sausages. There are many types of sausages. I will boil and pan-fried them. I will store the rest in the freezer.

We seldom have sauages in other restaurants, if we do, I will close both eyes and the kids usually have small portions :rotflmao:

On a similar processed meat, ham, Cold Storage sell a brand that has no preservatives and nitrate in the ham. I forgot the brand, it's in a box and the meat is vacuum packed. The variety includes honey baked, original, pork / turkey etc.
