You should have a go at schmalz on whole grain, down south in Germany.

It allows for an 'uncured' product to have a higher sodium nitrate count than one that is labeled as 'cured'.

Curing is just a form of food preservation. Salting was one of the first known to the caucasian Europeans, just like smoking and drying to the North American aboriginals. They are all forms of curing. The Trader Joe label is a result of the wrong road being taken to make the public believe they are being offered a healthier option, nothing more than a marketing gimmick.
Check also for the tell tale celery seed, another way for the stealth addition of nitrates.

At our local farmer's market (Halifax Seaport Farmers' Market) there is a Bavarian butcher. They make excellent sausages, and they sell a "nitrite-free double-smoked bacon" which is excellent. I can't speak to the presence of nitrites, nor how much nitrate might be in the bacon, but it tastes great!

Perhaps they are nitrite free but not nitrate free. Your body will do the rest converting them to nitrites.

Hey, get that, a near 1 meter construction.

It's a tipical spanish one, it has pork loin, fried green peppers, slices of fresh tomato, slices of jamon serrano, french ommelette and, on top of that, a big chunk of ali-oli (garlic mayonnaise).

Enjoy it, I did!
