Global Sodium Nitrite Market: Key Trends and Drivers
- The most prevalent market usage of Sodium Nitrite would be in the food processing industry, as an additive to meat products instead of salt. The action of both salt and sodium nitrite is to prevent microbial growth in meat products, but while salt does this via hygroscopic action, sodium nitrite is by virtue of its nature an antimicrobial. Also, sodium nitrite is preferable to salt due to the color it imparts to meat, being a pleasant pink rather than a brown shade as given by salt. Hence, both pragmatically and aesthetically, sodium nitrite fares better.
REQUEST FOR COVID19 IMPACT ANALYSIS –
