Treet is a canned meat product, similar to Spam, marketed by Armour Star in the USA. Sold as "spiced luncheon loaf", it is made with chicken and pork and has a more finely ground texture more akin to bologna or vienna sausages. Like Spam, it is often fried or baked before consumption.
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).
