“Game-changing” nitrite-free bacon: In January, nitrite-free Naked Bacon hit the shelves in the UK, claiming to revolutionize the British staple meat. Dubbed the “Holy Grail” of bacon that is “made without nasties,” the people behind Naked Bacon, Finneabrogue, said that it came up with a new way to produce bacon without using nitrites. It was and still is, the UK’s only bacon to be completely free from nitrites, preservatives, E numbers and all allergens, according to the company.
