Prague Powder #1 by OliveNation is a curing salt made from sodium nitrite, table salt, and pink food coloring. Also called Insta Cure #1 or DC #1, Prague Powder #1 can be used to cure meats for cooking, smoking, and canning. It also adds salty flavor and pink color to cured meats. Prague Powder #1 is for short-cure meats that will be cooked and eaten in a relatively short period, like bacon or sausages. It is not the right curing salt for long-cured and dry-cured meats such as hard salami. Use this curing formula to cure poultry, fish, ham, lunch meats, corned beef, and more. This product is non-GMO and gluten-free.
Please note that Prague Powder #1 cannot safely be used as a substitute for Prague Powder #2, as they are entirely different formulas and have different applications.
