DO YOU ADD NITRITES TO YOUR BACON OR HAM?
We do not use any nitrites, whether from traditional sodium nitrite or nitrites derived from vegetable extracts like celery juice. By adding non-selective fruit and spice extracts instead of nitrites, our Naked Bacon and Naked Ham has the equivalent dietary make up of fresh pork with added dried fruit juice.
WHY DO YOU ADD DEXTROSE / ASCORBIC ACID TO YOUR SAUSAGES?
Dextrose is used as an ingredient in the gluten-free crumb and the functionality of this is to add colour in the crumb; the ascorbic acid is a component in the seasoning – both of these are natural and derived from maize.
WHERE CAN I BUY RANKIN SAUSAGES?
We have streamlined our range of products under the Naked and Finnebrogue brands. We no longer produce Rankin sausages. Please try our other recipes for an equally, if not better tasting, sausage, without the nasties.
