So, what is nitrato di sodio?

Nitrato di sodio, also known as sodium nitrate, is a crystalline compound that is commonly used as a food preservative, color fixative, and flavoring agent. It is a white or yellowish powder that is highly soluble in water and has a slightly salty taste. Nitrato di sodio is often added to cured meats, such as bacon and hot dogs, to prevent bacterial growth and to give them a characteristic pink color. It is also used in some cheeses and fish products as a preservative. However, excessive consumption of nitrato di sodio has been linked to health risks, including an increased risk of cancer and other diseases.
