Celery Powder

Celery powder is commonly used in meats as a natural source of nitrites, which are essential for curing and preserving meat. When used in meat processing, celery powder provides a natural alternative to synthetic sodium nitrite, a common curing agent.

In cured meats like bacon, ham, and sausages, nitrites play a crucial role in inhibiting the growth of harmful bacteria like Clostridium botulinum, which can cause botulism. Nitrites also contribute to the characteristic pink color and distinct flavor of cured meats.

Celery powder is often included in meat formulations or applied as part of a curing blend to achieve the desired curing and preservation effects. It provides a natural source of nitrites derived from celery juice or celery extract, which can help meet our consumer preferences for clean-label and minimally processed products.
