PRAGUE POWDER #1

Curing salts are used in food preservation to prevent or slow spoilage by bacteria or fungus. Generally, they are used for pickling meats as part of the process to make sausage or cured meat. Prague Powder #1 is 6.25% sodium nitrite and 93.75% table salt. Sodium nitrite inhibits the growth of bacteria, specifically Clostridium botulinum in an effort to prevent botulism and helps preserve the color of cured meat. Curing salts contain red dye that makes them pink to prevent them from being confused with common table salt. Curing salts are not to be confused with Himalayan pink salt, which is pure salt with trace elements that give it a pink color.
