Data on protein and calories in all hot dogs available in the UK

Photo of author

To find the highest protein and lowest calorie hot dogs in the UK, I searched the websites of all of the most popular supermarkets in the UK that make their entire range accessible online. I also searched Amazon for any hot dogs by independent companies that are not stocked in supermarkets yet. I added the protein and calorie content of all available hot dogs in the table below.

Types of hot dogs I included

  • Hot dogs (frankfurters) that come in tins, jars or microwavable packets.
  • Any kind of meat hot dog; pork, chicken, turkey.

I didn’t include; mini hot dogs and “gourmet” hot dogs that can’t be cooked in hot water or microwaved (they’re basically regular sausages), vegetarian/vegan/meat-free hot dogs.


The table calculates the following metrics:

  • Protein per serving* “Prot. (Serv.)”
  • Protein per 100g “Prot. (100g)”
  • Protein per 100kcal “Prot. (100kcal)”
  • Calories per serving* “kcal (Serv.)”
  • Calories per 100g “kcal (100g)”
  • Calories per 10g protein “kcal (10g Prot.)”

*Serving size is one hot dog.

Find your macro match!

You can sort the table by the metric you care about most in ascending (lowest first) or descending (highest first) order by clicking the column headings.

If you want to quickly see the top picks for each metric, along with my thoughts and suggestions, check out my analysis of the highest protein and lowest calorie hot dogs in the UK.
