Baked Canadian bacon is a healthier alternative to regular bacon because it has less fat content. While both are pig products, real Canadian bacon is nothing close to the Americanized "Canadian bacon." In fact, real Canadian bacon resembles the American version of a slice off of the pork loin. However, American "Canadian bacon" is most commonly the processed, presliced meat product that is found in American grocery stores.
