Replacing 3% of calories from processed red meat like sausage, bacon, ham, corn beef, cold cuts, smoked meats, dried meat, beef jerky, canned meat and hot dogs with plant protein was associated with a 18% lower risk of death over 26-32 years according to a recent analysis from researchers from Harvard University.
This is the equivalent of replacing roughly 15-20 grams of protein from processed red meat with plant protein for people eating a diet containing 1800-2500 calories per day.
A hot dog contains 5 grams of protein.
Three slices of bacon contains 9 grams of protein.
Three ounces of sausage contains 10 grams of protein.
Three ounces of corned beef contains 15 grams of protein.
