Extreme caution should be taken with sodium nitrite which is mainly used as a food coloring agent. Sodium nitrite is added to meats to produce an appealing and fresh red color to the consumer.

More than 3,000 food additives — preservatives, flavorings, colors and other ingredients — are added to US foods. Meanwhile, many of these are banned in other countries, based on research showing toxicity and hazardous health effects, especially with respect to adverse effects on children’s behavior.
