QUESTION: I want to eat protein with the taste of meat but with no sodium nitrate in it. What kind of foods can replace the taste of meat?
Sodium nitrate is one of the most commonly used preservatives in processed foods. Things like salami, sausage-meat, tinned ham, all of those things all contain elevated levels of sodium nitrate. On the other hand, fresh meats generally don’t contain any added chemicals.
