Sodium Nitrites and Nitrates

This article on sodium nitrites and nitrates comes at no surprise to me. I have avoided cured meats for quite some time now, but I think that it is important to point out, because not many people realize the wide array of foods that are laced with this very toxic ingredient!

Eat This...

Thanks for sharing that article with us. Very informative. I'm gonna have to try the applegate farms turkey bacon and also the chicken sausage.

Thank you for that info! Where is the FDA ? They've totally dropped the ball on this!

Trader Joe's has some very good products with no nitrates - their bacon and their all beef hotdogs - both very very good.

April, don't get me started on the FDA. :( Unfortunately, they seem to value the food industries' interests more than the public's health. Unfortunately, nitrates/nitrites are not the only food additives that show a link to cancer.

GreenyBeeny, I agree, Trader Joe's does have good uncured meats.
