So, what is natriumnitrat?

Natriumnitrat, also known as sodium nitrate, is a white crystalline compound commonly used as a food preservative, particularly in cured meats such as bacon, ham, and hot dogs. It is also used in fertilizers, pyrotechnics, and as a component in the manufacturing of various chemical compounds. Despite its effectiveness as a preservative, natriumnitrat has been the subject of controversy due to its potential health risks, including a possible link to cancer. While it is generally considered safe in small amounts, the European Union has set maximum limits for its use in food products to ensure consumer safety.
