Treet has a less greasy texture than Spam, more akin to bologna or vienna sausages. Like Spam, it is often heated before consumption. This includes frying or baking. Baked Treet with ketchup or steak sauce is often referred to as "Treet loaf" after meat loaf. Although it is officially a "spiced luncheon loaf", Treet is often called "Treet meat". For unknown reasons, possibly ingredient costs, Treet is copied for private label luncheon loaf more often than Spam. While very popular, and often less expensive than Spam, Treet does not have Spam's cult following. It is also sold as lunch meat in the deli section as a alternative to bologna in some southern grocery stores
A 56 gram (approximately 2 ounce) serving of Treet provides six grams of protein, four grams of carbohydrates, 11 grams of fat (17% US Daily Value) including 3.5 grams of saturated fat (18% US Daily Value), and 140 calories. A serving also contains more than a third of the recommended daily intake of sodium (salt). A 56 gram serving of Treet contains 820 mg of sodium, equivalent to approximately 2 grams of salt, indicating about 3.6% of treet's mass is salt. Treet provides very little in terms of vitamins and minerals (0% vitamin A, 0% vitamin C, 6% calcium, 4% iron).
