Meats such as salami are usually packed with preservatives, so the Antica Ardenga 'Free Salami' features no nitrates or nitrites to offer consumers a healthier alternative. With studies coming out that report the unhealthy nature of preservatives, many consumers are searching for products that are free from them in addition to any other chemical ingredients.

The Antica Ardenga 'Free Salami' might contain no nitrates or nitrites, but it doesn't stop there. The salami is made from pork that was raised on GMO-free diet that's focused on being balanced and to keep the animal as healthy as possible.

Explaining the new Antica Ardenga 'Free Salami,' Manager Massimo Pezzani said, "I’ve tried to make a product that is as natural as possible...based on the premise that the vast majority of charcuterie is now made with extensive use of nitrites, nitrates and antioxidants. A remarkable amount of work has been done behind the scenes and the production philosophy is completely different, but the pay-off for the sacrifices is a high-quality product."
