NO NITRITES EVER, NO EXCEPTIONS!
Rovagnati strives to give consumers more choices: in order to help reduce exposure to Synthetic Nitrites, Rovagnati has developed an innovative and exclusive technology which guarantees a product without the use of Nitrites of any kind, including those naturally occurring in certain vegetable ingredients (e.g. celery powder) that you can find in products showing the labeling claim “No Nitrites Added” followed by an asterisk/disclaimer.
NO NITRITES EVER
Nitrites have always been used for the preservation of processed meats. They can be either added directly to the recipe or obtained from natural ingredients such as vegetables. In fact, Nitrates, which are naturally present in nature in certain vegetables such as celery powder, beet and spinach, can be converted into Nitrites through a fermentation process, specially activated for the production and preservation of processed meats.
