Make your summer barbecue healthier by choosing a low-calorie wiener.

Bite It: Hebrew National 97% Fat Free Beef Franks

We're not saying hot dogs are good for you -- any of them. But we're only human, and every once in a while we get a hankering for an old-fashioned grilled frankfurter. Especially now that BBQ season is here. When these times of desperation arise, we reach for Hebrew National's 97% Fat Free Beef Franks. They taste almost as good as full-fat franks -- just as good in some cases -- but contain a fraction of the calories and fat. In fact, you can eat three of these pups and still take in 45 fewer calories and 11.5 fewer fat grams than you'd get from one measly Ball Park Beef Frank. That's insane! HG Heads Up: Don't be fooled by Hebrew National's Reduced Fat Beef Franks -- those still have 120 calories and 10 fat grams! Just slide one of these nearly fat-free franks into a Wonder Light hot dog bun or wrap it in a slice of light bread, and you've got yourself a delicious low-cal snack or the start of a great light lunch! Good doggie!

I Evev with the reduced fat content take a good look at the sodium content! Unless the salt content is reduced and The nitrate and nitrite levels eliminated no way are any of these hot dogs the way to go. E nitrate/nitrite levels

What about the cholesterol in the franks? This is an important issue to many people.

The fat is only one issue regarding hot dogs. It is all the other garbage like BHT, MSG, etc. Nitrates. They are very bad for you and until you remove all the harmful preservatives and other ingredients I will not eat a hot dog. And I do love them too.
