Here in the States, Spam sells a variety that's 25% less sodium. It still tastes pretty salty to me so that's what I eat.
I've heard that Spam is big in South Korea. Are there Korean brands that are any good?
I agree, even the low sodium is salty as hell.
As for a Korean equivalent, not really, you can't beat the original SPAM sodium levels with any counterfeit!
I believe there's one or two brands which offer a decent luncheon meat, which I have eaten in the past. As for the Brand, not sure, guessing it be made by Sunbo....
I guess it became a thing here after the Korean War, since it was cheap and plentiful.
