Turkey bacon often contains more sodium than its pork counterpart. Read labels and choose leaner cuts of bacon for the best balance between sodium, fat, and overall calories.

Nutrition facts
Turkey bacon (1 ounce,
3.5 slices, or 28 grams) 107 calories, 7.8 grams of fat and 640 mg sodium

Canadian bacon (1 ounce,
1.25 slices, or 28 grams) 52 calories, 2.4 grams of fat and 433 mg of sodium

So Canadian bacon is the better choice between these two.

I recall these two being stacked up against each other before and canadian bacon turning out to be the "better choice." Being someone who doesn't consume pork, I'd go with turkey bacon every time though.

Lots of different ways to judge that.. calories, sodium, or fat.

My guess would be the turkey bacon, but looking it up on your nutrition page should help you.
