You can just add the powder to a recipe.. dissolve it in distilled water... DO NOT ADD more than 0.5% dry powder based on the weight of the meat...
Weight of meat X 0.005 = 5%......

After a long search I found in Canada it's called Curaid Supreme
To help bind and retain moisture in sausage. Cure sold separately. Use 57grams-170grams (2-6oz) for 100lbs of meat.
Ingredients: Blend of food grade Sodium Phosphate.
For those looking for some in the great white North

Hey !!!! Great find.....

170 grams per 100# = 0.37%
57 grams per 100# = 0.13%

Good numbers..... Canada has a little but lower tolerance for STPP than the US.... Which is all good... I keep my additions about 25% below max. allowable in the US.....
