Sure Cure and Dry Cure Units


Cure units consist mainly of salt, and sodium nitrate and/or sodium nitrite. Additional ingredients may include sugar, sodium erythorbate/ascorbate, phosphates, and flavours.

Canadian regulations are very specific on the usage levels allowed for nitrates/nitrites in meat products, and should be thoroughly understood before beginning the curing process. Malabar is happy to help you understand, and implement, these regulations in making your products.

To the best of our knowledge, the above information is accurate and reliable, and is offered solely for consideration and assistance without any warranty or guarantee.
