Pink curing salt question
I got a nice belly from the local Mexican market this morning and went in search for curing salts. I found a butchers supply house and went by and picked up some pink curing salt. When I got home I read the small print and the label said "Sodium Nitrate 6.25 percent." I had read that all pink salts were sodium "Nitrite". This curing salt was repackaged by the local butcher supply house in their own bags. So I am assuming that they got it in the wrong bag. Can anyone verify that "ALL" pink curing salt is NITRITE. When I search the internet for NITRATE it all seems to be a yellowish tint. The People at the butcher supply place didn't inspire me to call them back and ask this question.
