SafePlate® Cherry Powder

SafePlate® Acerola Cherry Powder works with natural sources of nitrite to accelerate curing, improve cured color throughout shelf-life, and meet USDA antimicrobial guidelines when used in conjunction with Wenda Ingredients’ SafePlate® Beet Powder or Celery Powders. Superior synergistic solution to using only a natural source of nitrite while still maintaining a low cost-in-use. Vitamin C concentrate options include a minimum of 34% for standard applications or a minimum of 17% for formulas that require a lower concentration for better dispersibility, such as sausages and meat sticks.
