Nitrate Free Cured Meats

In an effort to meet the demand for cured meat that does not contain the chemical preservatives known as nitrates/nitrites, manufacturers have been increasing their output of cured meat that contains natural preservatives.

Naturally cured meats look and taste the same as the hot dogs and sausages that we are used to, only they don’t have the dangerous chemical preservatives. Organic cured meat producers have found the naturallyoccurringnitrates found invegetablesto be the perfect substitute. According to Joseph Sebranek, an Iowa State University food science professor, “Consumers can’t tell the difference, except that they’re labeled natural and organic.” Natural/Organic cured meats can be found at stores like Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s or your local health food stores around the U.S. and in many places internationally.
