Maybe someone here knows? I know that the stuff you get packaged in the deli meat aisle is heavily processed. I think its even "formed". Not just the cold cuts that are EXACTLY the same shape and size but the supposed "shaved" ones too. It seems like they make it into mush and then shape each cold cut. Is that the same for the deli meat that you get behind the deli counter? The one where you point out the type of meat you want and they slice it up the way you want it? Is that meat also processed and formed? Do they add preservatives, colorings, flavors to that meat also? I don't think that the deli meat behind the counter is formed because you can actually see the individual muscle fibers. I am basically trying to eat healthy and cutting out all the unnecessary chemicals we put in our bodies everyday. Any help would be appreciated.
