Here is a list from one package: sodium phosphates, sodium ascorbate, sodium erythorbate, sodium nitrite, potassium lactate, sodium diacetate.
In my recent writing, I have tried to deal with my fears, and it is science fiction that seems most ready and able to take on the demons of our times: sodium erythorbate, Britney, and Cargill.
The Brazilian and American scientists produced six sausage formulations with sodium erythorbate, norbixin, lycopene, zeaxanthin, beta-carotene, or dextrose at a level of 0.05 grams per 100 grams.
Sausages formulated with zeaxanthin and norbixin were found to reduce levels of oxidation products, indicating reduced spoilage after refrigerated storage for 45 days, according to findings published in pigments performed significantly better than the synthetic preservative sodium erythorbate
The food industry has long been aware of this, and is increasingly seeking natural solutions rather than artificial additives, such as like sodium erythorbate (NaEry), butylhydroxyanisole (BHA) and butylhydroxytoluene (BHT), to extend the shelf life of milder-tasting products.
Results showed that zeaxanthin and norbixin were the most effective, while no effect was observed for sodium erythorbate.
Though this product was cured with nitrites and sodium erythorbate, it didn’t taste chemically processed.
