“Healthy diet” home-made pickles container

Pickled food is a kind of food crystallization summarized by Chinese forerunners and has always been loved by people because the preserved food can not only be stored but also keep food delicious. In the curing process, nitrite can inhibit Clostridium botulinum and other types of spoilage growth, with good color and antioxidant effects, and can improve the flavor of pickled foods. However, nitrite can react with the amines of the protein-decomposition products in the pickled product to form nitrosamines, a strong carcinogen. The presence of nitrite in the cured food product is the major potential hazard.
