  • The Truth About Nitrite Free Bacon: Separating Fact from Fiction‍‍

    ‍ Introduction In recent years, there has been a surge in popularity surrounding nitrite free bacon and nitrate free bacon. Concerns about the potential health risks associated with consuming sodium nitrites, a common preservative used in cured meats, have prompted consumers to seek out alternatives. However, there seems to be a lot of confusion and misinformation surrounding the topic. In this article, we will delve into the truth about nitrite free bacon, examining the science behind it and whether it truly offers a healthier option for bacon lovers. Understanding Nitrite Free Bacon What is Nitrite Free Bacon? Nitrite free bacon is often misunderstood. Contrary to popular belief, all bacon is technically nitrate free. The confusion arises from the fact that most bacon contains sodium nitrites, not nitrates. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) requires the use of nitrites as a preservative in cured meats. Therefore, bacon labeled as "uncured" is actually cured using naturally occurring nitrites, such as those found in celery powder. Nitrates vs Nitrites: What's the Difference? To fully understand the controversy surrounding nitrite free bacon, it's essential to distinguish between nitrates and nitrites. Nitrates and nitrites are salts that contain nitrogen and oxygen. Nitrates have three oxygen atoms, while nitrites have two. Nitrates are inert and must be converted into nitrites by bacteria to be used for food preservation. Nitrites play a crucial role in preventing the growth of bacteria in meat, enhancing its color, flavor, and shelf life. Health Concerns and the Link to Cancer The primary concern associated with nitrites in bacon is their potential to form nitrosamines when cooked at high temperatures. Nitrosamines are known to be carcinogenic and have been linked to an increased risk of cancer, particularly colorectal cancer. Several studies have shown that the consumption of processed meats, including bacon, can contribute to an elevated risk of cancer and other adverse health effects. However, it's important to note that it's not the nitrites themselves that are the problem but rather what happens to them during high-temperature cooking. The Science Behind Nitrite Free Bacon The Role of Celery Powder Many nitrite-free bacon products on the market utilize celery powder as a natural alternative to sodium nitrite. Celery powder contains naturally occurring nitrites, which are responsible for the preservation of the meat. However, it's crucial to understand that bacon made with celery powder is not truly nitrite-free. The nitrites present in celery powder can still convert into nitrosamines when exposed to high temperatures during cooking. Nitrite Levels in Nitrite Free Bacon Surprisingly, studies have shown that nitrite-free bacon may contain higher levels of nitrites compared to traditionally cured bacon. Laboratory tests conducted on different bacon products revealed that uncured bacon had higher average nitrite levels than cured bacon. This finding challenges the common perception that nitrite-free bacon is a healthier option. Making an Informed Choice The Importance of Labeling One of the major challenges for consumers looking to buy nitrite-free bacon is the misleading labeling found in the market. Bacon labeled as "uncured" or "nitrate/nitrite free" often contains disclaimers stating that it may still contain naturally occurring nitrites from ingredients like celery powder. These disclaimers can create confusion among consumers, leading them to believe that these products are truly nitrite-free when, in fact, they still contain nitrites. The Search for True Nitrite Free Bacon Finding truly nitrite free bacon can be a daunting task due to the widespread use of celery powder as a natural alternative to sodium nitrite. However, some brands have developed innovative methods to produce bacon without the use of nitrites or celery powder - Primal Cut bacon does not use Celery powder. These brands rely on a blend of Mediterranean herbs and extracts that have been scientifically proven to be as effective as traditional curing methods. Conclusion In conclusion, the quest for nitrate-free bacon is more complex than it may initially seem. While bacon labeled as "uncured" or "nitrate/nitrite free" may appear to be a healthier alternative, it's important to understand that these products still contain naturally occurring nitrates and nitrites. The potential health risks associated with nitrites in bacon are primarily linked to their conversion into nitrosamines during high-temperature cooking. Consumers should be cautious when choosing bacon and consider the overall integrity and claims made by the producer. Ultimately, making an informed choice about bacon consumption involves understanding the science behind the different curing methods and the potential risks involved. Rest assured Primal Cut Nitrate Free Bacon is all-natural and made with free-range pork - please remember, don't crucify your bacon!

(If using ordinary broccoli, skip this step.) Tip everything into a roasting tin large enough to hold it all in a single layer, and mix well. Make sure the chipolata sausages are on top, then transfer to the oven and bake for 30 minutes. If your oven heats unevenly, turn the roasting tin after about 20 minutes so the sausages brown evenly.

    This autumn paleo-friendly breakfast bake uses our all-natural sausages for extra flavour and will satisfy even the hungriest member of the family! Packed full of golden autumnal veg and topped with fresh free-range eggs, we have made this dish extra flavoursome by including lots of seasoning with the oil for baking. A simple, nourishing and tasty Autumn tray bake for the whole family- nothing easier! To make the autumn traybake you will need: 6 free range pork sausages (we used our Toulouse sausage - you can also buy this in a coil which would be fun to bake too) Butternut Squash (peeled and cubed) Sweet Potatoes (peeled and cubed) 1/2 red onion (peeled and cut into quarters) Yellow Pepper (sliced) Broccoli (chopped) And anything else you wish to use up in the fridge! Super nice additions include a handful of chopped pecan nuts and a handful of dried cranberries (no sugar added) 4 - 6 eggs (depending on how many are eating)! Seasoning 1/4 cup of your choice of cooking oil ( coconut, olive oil or avocado oil) 2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar 1 tsp onion granules 1/2 tsp each of dried basil, garlic powder, paprika, sea salt and cracked black pepper How to make this healthy Autumn traybake Pre heat the oven to 180C Cut the sausages into 1/2 inch pieces and place into large mixing bowl (ignore this step if using our Toulouse Coil) Chop the veg and add into the mixing bowl In a separate bowl mix together all the seasoning ingredients Pour the seasoning onto the sausage and vegetable mix to coat generously Line a baking sheet with tin foil and carefully transfer the mix onto the baking sheet. Spread the mix out evenly Bake in the oven for approximately 20 minutes until the vegetable are starting to brown. Remove from the oven and stir in the pecans and cranberries if using. If using the Toulouse coil, place this on top too, cook for a further 20 minutes Remove the tray and create 4 or 6 wells in the mix. Crack an egg into each well - being careful not to break the yolk Cook for a final ten minutes max for the eggs to bake well. Serve and enjoy! So Hello Autumn! The weather is definitely changing and now that we have our puppy, Ted we are out walking every day. Having a dog changes lives in so many unexpected ways from having to find the energy to walk him at least three times a day (or he goes super hyper bonkers) to taking time to talk to people who also have dogs and to share the fun of watching them grow up and also being able to watch the seasonal changes on the walkways and paths we follow every day. WE hope you try out our Autumn tray bake - we'd love to see your pictures or hear from you if you do!
