Q:

How many grams of protein are in bacon?

A:

Leaner center cuts of bacon typically have between 10.5 and 12 grams of protein for 4 to 6 slices. However, one serving of bacon bits contains up to 12 grams of protein.

Typically, the type of bacon, such as center cut or bacon bits, is the largest factor in the amount of protein the bacon contains. Additionally, the protein amounts for bacon are determined the number of slices in the serving; the more slices consumed the higher the protein count. Slices of bacon that have lower amounts of fat contain more protein, while the fattier portions of the pig generally have fewer grams of total protein.
