1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes, but

not the most nutritious option.
Cooking fresh meat is better. Removing the nitrates has healthful benefits, but adding carmelized sugar carries all expected risk (weight gain, missed nutrients when filling up on high carb foods, tooth decay, insulin intolerance, etc)
