PURE BACON OFFERING
Boks Bacon is an artisanal producer of award-winning bacon, sausages and hams, based in Tasmania. It has recently added Pure Bacon to its offering: a nitrite, sugar-free and gluten-free bacon that is deliciously flavourful. Instead of nitrites, Boks uses fruit and spice extract to substitute for preservatives, and uses no honey or sugar to cure the bacon. As with Boks Bacon, the product is dry cured and cold smoked, as part of a time-honoured process in a traditional wood fire smoker, with beautiful Tasmanian Oak. Pure Bacon has a long shelf life (60 days from date of production) as a result of this process, which is similar to that used for prosciutto. It has a much higher protein level per gram, as opposed to other bacons that are injected with 30 to 50 per cent water/brine.
