500gms # 2 Curing Salts (nitrites & nitrates) for AIR dried meat

  • Image 1
Price:
$7.50


Product Description

Curing salts with a combination of Nitrites & Nitrates are required for safe long term slow processing of AIR dried meats. This cure is equivalent to Prague powder or Insta cure #2.

This cure #2 contains 6.25% Sodium Nitrite, 1% Sodium Nitrate and 92.75% regular salt. It is dyed pink to adhere to Australian Standards and so that it isn't mistaken for regular salt/sugar. 

A cure containing Nitrites is considered a fast cure and is used in semi dried meats like Jerky, Bacon and Sausages (Kransky etc) meats that have been heat treated prior to air drying.

A cure that has a combination of Nitrates and Nitrites is ONLY suitable for Air dried salamis and AIR cured meats etc because the Nitrites protect the meat in its early stages and the Nitrates break down into Nitrites over a period of time giving the salami the added protection it needs.

DO NOT USE A CURE CONTAINING NITRATES FOR MEATS LIKE JERKY, SEMI DRIED SAUSAGES OR BACON. NITRATES NEED TIME TO BREAK DOWN BEFORE HUMAN CONSUMPTION.

These packs are perfectly balanced with the right combination of ingredients so that you can confidently process your meats and not be concerned that you may get the mix wrong.

Also sold in 1kg and 3kg packs.
