Snagging a slice of hard salami from a perfectly plated charcuterie board is sure to make your mouth water. If you know you love hard salami, you’ll have to learn to limit your portion size. Not only is hard salami full of calories, but it’s also very high in fat.

The Hard Numbers

Pork and beef hard salami has slightly fewer calories than plain pork salami. One ounce of pork and beef hard salami gives you about 105 calories, whereas the same amount of pork-only salami contains nearly 115 calories. No matter which one you prefer, the caloric breakdown is about the same. Less than 3 percent of calories come from carbs, while 22 percent of the calories come from protein and 75 percent of calories stem from fat.
