Unprocessd Bacon - cured and dried in Ilkley
We like to be different, that's why we called our unprocessed nitrate-free back bacon - Primal Bacon!
We believe that health and wellbeing starts with the food we eat. We wanted to create a genuine healthy bacon, natural, free from, naked bacon that tasted even better than regular, commercial bacon. We wanted it to be even better than the leading nitrite-free bacon brand, with 100% real food ingredients and no allergens, or water!
Nitrate free bacon - we weren't even sure it was possible. Could we develop a suitable all-natural cure recipe, without chemical additives, preservatives, added sugar, gluten or other allergens?
Of course, our unprocessed gluten-free bacon is certified by Coeliac UK and approved by the real food program - Whole30. It's Whole30 approved bacon, but also; coeliac, diabetic, paleo bacon, low carb, weight loss and even keto bacon.
Free-range pork, simple ingredients and longer curing results in subtle aromatic scents and intense flavours.
There's no added water, sugar, phosphates or nitrites (sodium nitrite). That means, no froth, scummy discharge, shrinking on cooking.
We take whole sides of certified free-range pork and generously apply our natural cure recipe.
These are then stacked onto racks and kept chilled for 14-21 days. This is where the magic happens - improving flavour, enhancing appearance and extracting water.
Once done, the loins and bellies are hung to dry age in a chamber where humidity and temperature are monitored round the clock.
Making bacon naturally, takes longer. Anything from 21-42 days of TLC goes into ensuring our healthy bacon is the best preservative-free bacon around.
