  • Seventy percent of bacon is consumed during breakfast.

  • There are 8 different cuts of bacon: streaky, back, collar, picnic, jowl, gammon, cottage and middle.

  • There are also 8 different types of bacon which are: Canadian, Pancetta, Ventreche, Proscuitto, Serrano, Guanciale and White bacon.
