    The USDA banned the use of Nitrate in Bacon because, according to, which study you believe, Nitrate can be converted to Nitrosamine in the stomach, which may or may not be a " possible " link to causing cancer when bacon is cooked over high heat and well done, crispy. TQ contains a small percentage of Nitrate along with the Nitrite used exclusively in Cure #1.
    There is a lot of " May or May Not and Possible Link " found with many other study inconsistencies here, just like with Eggs raising Cholesterol and MSG causing everything for a Head Ache to Birth Defects. Regardless, it Has been 100% Proven that an Antioxidant like Citric Acid in Orange Juice and other fruit. Eliminates any nitrosamine issues. So Slow Cook your TQ cured Bacon or drink some OJ with Bacon and Eggs or have a side of Blueberry Pancakes and don't worry about the tiny amount of Nitrate in Tender Quick...JJ

    It's your choice.

    I’m a Sunny Delight man myself. Also like it mixed with Vodka for a low class screwdriver.
