Naturally Occurring Nitrite Used Significantly as a Food Preservatives Compound

Nitrite is a naturally occurring chemical in the environment which are present as inorganic ions. The ammonia present in the soil oxidizes to form nitrite. They are introduced through the application of fertilizers containing nitrogen compounds, which may be through decomposition of animal waste or may be through septic system or sewage treatment facilities. Regular usage of nitrite may lead to skin diseases. They are also called as poppers which are yellow in color and are at times used for their intoxicating effects they are sold in bottles and are inhaled directly from the bottle or from a cigarette dipped into the liquid or a cloth. Nitrites are a common components of food preservatives e.g. sodium nitrite is used to preserve meat. Because of nitrites the meat color is red or pink which is caused by oxidation of nitrites to nitric oxide. The average intake of nitrite is approximately 0.09 mg.

Inclination towards Plant-based Ingredients as Preservatives Could Hamper the Growth of the Global Nitrite Market

The growth of global nitrite market is driven by food and beverage industry, as it is used as a preservative in meat. The key factor restraining the growth of the market is the large intake of nitrites that may change normal hemoglobin to methemoglobin as a result it reduces the ability of the bloods to transport oxygen to cells. The starvation of oxygen in blood can lead to bluish tint of the lips, nose and ears in some cases, this is known as blue-baby syndrome in can even lead to heart and respiratory problems which may lead to death. However some scientist claim that the intake of nitrites is harmful while some claims them to be. As of now there are no substitutes that can replace the functions of nitrites however combination of plant-based ingredients and evolving technologies could be used to decrease or completely substitute nitrite as preservatives in meats products. Many industries have begun to develop alternatives of nitrites, as there is an increasing demand for natural and organic meat products.
