Best Deli Meat Brands

2012 Food Awards

Sandwiches are a staple American lunch, especially when we're trying to watch our weight. Pre-packaged deli meat is an easy way to get a butcher's-style lunch meat at a more affordable cost. However, if you've read food labels or watched your nutrition you know that finding a healthy deli meat package is harder than you think. We sorted through the options and found a few that met our criteria.

Nutrition Criteria

< 70 calories, 0 trans fat, < 10% of calories from fat, < 1g of saturated fat or 15% of total fat, < 360mg sodium, 0 sugar, at least 10% of vitamin A, vitamin C, iron, or calcium.


  1. Oscar Mayer Deli Fresh Turkey Pastrami: This had only 70 calories and 20% of vitamin C, but 460mg of sodium knocked it out of contention.

  2. Oscar Mayer Deli Fresh Oven Roasted Turkey Breast: This would be the runner up for this category, falling from the top spot because it had more sodium than the winner.

  3. Kroger Del Sliced Mesquite Turkey Breast: This is similar to Oscar Mayer's Deli Fresh Roasted Turkey Breast but has 630mg of sodium, clearly well above the recommended amount.
