So, what is kaliumnitraatti?

Kaliumnitraatti, also known as potassium nitrate or saltpeter, is a chemical compound with the molecular formula KNO3. It is a naturally occurring mineral that can be found in soil, and is also commonly used in the production of fertilizers, fireworks, and gunpowder. In the food industry, kaliumnitraatti is primarily used as a food preservative, especially for cured meats like bacon and ham. It works by inhibiting the growth of bacteria that can cause spoilage, and also helps to preserve the meat's color and flavor. However, it is important to use kaliumnitraatti in moderation, as excessive consumption can be harmful to health.
