Pink Curing Salt is used to preserve a good pink colour. It is sold under several names including Prague powder #1. It's pink to make sure we don't use it as regular table salt and blends better with meat. Pink Curing Salt is excellent for use when making sausages, brining meats such as ham or turkey, or when smoking meats such as bacon or pastrami.
Salt, 6.25% sodium nitrite, FD & C Red #3.
