Nitrite Free Bacon

WHY NITRITES?

NITRITES ARE USED IN BACON PRODUCTION IN THE FORM OF SALT PETRE AND HAVE TWO DISTINCTIVE FUNCTIONS:

  1. TO ACT AS A PRESERVATIVE

  2. TO COLOUR THE BACON PINK, JUST LOOK AT ANY BACON PREPACKED …WHAT COLOUR IS IT? YES YOU`VE GUESSED IT …PINK.

HAM HAS ALSO NITRITES AND ALSO DISPLAYS A PINK COLOUR AS IT DOES ANY CURED MEATS: BEEF LAMB PORK SAUSAGES ESPECIALLY FRANKFURTERS AND MANY CONTINENTAL TYPE SAUSAGES.

ON THE DOWNSIDE IT IS A RECOGNISED FACT THAT NITRITES ARE CARCEOGENIC. ONCE TAKEN INTO THE BODY NITRITES TURN INTO A RELATED CHEMICAL KNOWN AS NITROSOMMES AND THIS HYBRID IS HIGHLY CARCENOGENIC….WHY RISK OUR HEALTH.

I DECIDED TO CREATE AN ALTERNATIVE BACON FOR THOSE WHO ARE HEALTH CONSCIOUS AND HAVE BEEN HUMBLED TO FIND THAT MANY GROUPS OF PEOPLE REACT BADLY TO NITRITES IN FOOD. FOR EXAMPLE AUTISTIC CHILDREN REACT FAVOURABLY TO A NITRITE FREE DIETAND BACON IS ONE FOOD IN PARTICULAR WHICH THEY BENEFIT FROM.

MANY FAMOUS PUBLICATIONS RELATING TO DIET STRESS THE IMPORTANCE OF AVOIDING FOODS CONTAINING NITRITES FOR THE PROMOTION OF HEALTH.

FERMANAGH BLACK BACON SUITS THE PROIDUCTION OF NITRITE FREE BACON AND GUESS WHAT ? ..IT NOT ONLY TASTES GREAT BUT IS MORE IN TUNE WITH YOUR METABOLISM…….YOUR BODY DOESN`T STRUGGLE WITH IT . AS A FOOD IT IS ASSIMILATED MORE EASLIY.
