What is the SPAM® Brand?

Six Simple, Core Ingredients

Ah, the age-old question; what is the meat in that special can of SPAM® Classic? Many myths abound, but the answer is actually quite simple.







How It’s Made

At first glance, one might assume SPAM® products are produced through magic. But it’s actually a relatively simple, conventional process.

Serving Suggestion

Whatever you may hear, no ‘scrapings’ or ‘useless bits’ of pork or ham have ever found their way into SPAM® products. High quality pork shoulder meat and ham (actually hand cut off the bone) are ground together with water, a little sugar, salt and spice to be cooked in the can to seal in the goodness.

Spam products contain nitrites, ingredients found in the majority, if not all ham, bacon, sausage, pork pies and other meat products. It is a common preservative that serves as an added protection against spoilage and also helps the meat retain its attractive pink colour.

*Very small amounts of additives are added in the form of stabilizers, preservatives and colours.
