Summary and Implications

The change in ingredients and processing procedures necessary for natural and organic bacon are likely to result in some product quality differences when compared with traditionally processed bacon. Preliminary results for % cured color, TBARS value, and residual nitrite concentrations in this study suggest variability in quality of products currently on the market. This may affect consumer satisfaction and repeat purchases of these products. Further, these results imply differences in shelf-life and safety of these products as well.
