Pink Curing Salt is one of the most common curing salts. It is also called Insta Cure #1 or Pink curing salt #1. It contains 6.25% sodium nitrite and 93.75% table salt. It is recommended for curing meats that require short cures and will be cooked and eaten relatively quickly. Sodium nitrite provides the characteristic flavor and color associated with curing. Pink curing salt is used both curing and preserving fish, sausage, bacon, salami, and much more. Pink curing salt is a mixture of sodium chloride and (table salt) and sodium nitrite. It is dyed pink so that it won’t be confused with table salt, it should not be used in excess. Though it is used to cure meat, it is not present in finished, cured meats in a high enough dosage to cause issues. This makes it entirely safe for the curing process. Not to be confused with Pink Himalayan Salt, pink curing salt is a mixture of sodium chloride and (table salt) and sodium nitrite. It is dyed pink so that it won’t be confused with table salt, it should not be used in excess. Though it is used to cure meat, it is not present in finished, cured meats in a high enough dosage to cause issues. This makes it entirely safe for the curing process. It’s important to remember that pink curing salt by itself is 100% toxic to humans. It should never be used as regular table salt and should not be sprinkled on food for flavoring. Pink curing salt is just that—curing salt. The most important health benefit of this salt is that it removes toxins from meat, making sausages, roasts, steaks, poultry, and many others safe to eat.
