Sodium Nitrite (NaNO2 or SN): Sodium nitrite is used to speed up the curing of meat and also impart an attractive pink color. Nitrite reacts with the meat myoglobin to cause color changes, first converting to nitrosomyoglobin (bright red), then, on heating, to nitrosohemochrome (a pink pigment).

Use in accordance with your curing recipe to make cured hams, sausages, and bacon.
