But you could exceed 10% pick-up a bit in that example and still be within the limit.Yet...not mentioning of "this method requires close monitoring to ensure you don't exceed 10% pickup". That 10% is considered a given. Look it up in other meat curing forums (sausagemaker).
If folks don't understand, it's their responsibility to ask questions or do the research..or...pick a better curing method.Maximum % pick-up (or gain) = (200ppm x total weight of the brine solution ÷ weight of the nitrite x 1,000,000) x100
So, using the numbers from the other thread.....
200 x 14456=2891200
24.8 x 1000000=24800000
2891200 ÷ 24800000= 0.11658064516
0.11658064516 x 100=11.67% gain, maximum, to stay within the 200ppm nitrite limit.
