Dry Cured Bacon:
Naked Bacon is dry cured naturally with sea salt, without the use of nitrates, and it is shelf stable without refrigeration for 10 days per USDA guidelines (see the chart below!).
One of the unique things about dry-cured bacon like ours is that it’s naturally bacteria resistant. That's one of the reasons our forefathers made dry-cured bacon, because it preserves meat without the need for refrigeration.
The USDA allows for dry cured, sliced bacon to be stored unrefrigerated up to 85F for 10 days. Since all of our bacon is packed on ice for shipments, it will be perfectly safe to consume when it arrives to you, even if the ice melts in transit.
The pink color you may be used to seeing in bacon is due to the use of nitrates. Even so-called “natural” bacon companies use nitrates to speed up the process, usually from celery or cherry, but Naked Bacon doesn’t use nitrates of any kind, because there’s no rushing perfection. Naked Bacon is cured with sea salt + time, and absolutely nothing else so it is the natural color of meat!
