Canadian bacon is cut from the loin of the pig so when you compare it to bacon which is usually taken from a penned raised pig and not free range like Canadian bacon..which has less fat then a hog raised in a pen!

In the United States ordinary bacon is only made from the pork belly, yielding what is known in Britain as "streaky bacon", or "streaky rashers". In Britain bacon made from the meat on the back of the pig is referred to as back bacon and is part of traditional British and Irish breakfasts. In the United States, back bacon is called Canadian-style Bacon or Canadian Bacon.

Which explains why it confused be.

What about the difference between Danish and British organic bacons. not much
but for the lesser amount of water in the non-organic meats

And polar bears.

What do Polar Bears have to do with pigs and bacon, organic or the conventionally farmed. From the USA, Canada, UK even Denmark? NOthing.

I know most Canadians will not like this question but is Canadian bacon the same as US bacon?

I agree that is not what I believe! Your back bacon is what we eat for breakfast also.

Canadian bacon is delicious lean and ohhhh so yummy! Way different then back bacon!
