The Finnebrogue Naked Bacon has been developed as a new line of pork products from the Ireland-based brand that is created without the use of nitrites. Touted as the world's first line of bacon that is free from nitrites, the products ditch the harmful ingredient due to the recent study by the World Health Organization that the stuff can be as dangerous as asbestos to human health. This is because nitrites become nitrosamines in the gut after ingestion, which are cancer causing and best to be avoided.
Speaking on the new Finnebrogue Naked Bacon line, Finnebrogue Chairman, Denis Lyn, said, "The problem with bacon is dead simple. Bacon contains nitrites, nitrites produce nitrosamines in your gut and nitrosamines are carcinogenic. Nitrites should not be in food. Our Naked Bacon is not only safer than any other bacon on the market, it also tops the charts in blind taste tests."
