Organic Unsmoked Back Bacon
Made without nitrates or nitrites
In an exciting new development for organic bacon, we are proud to be the first producer launching to British supermarkets with organic bacon made without nitrates or nitrites.
Why is our new bacon better?
We all love bacon. Whether folded in a soft roll for breakfast or as a versatile ingredient in so many suppers. But bacon has traditionally been cured with added nitrates and nitrite salts to keep it safe, which have been the subject of health concerns in recent years. Helen Browning has been keen to recreate our award-winning bacon without using these additives, while retaining organic integrity – and even improving the natural rich, robust pork flavour of our streaky and back rashers.
Why is our bacon special?
The result of years of development with close partners, Houghton Hams, is bacon cured with salt and flavoured with organic fruit and vegetable extracts – lemons and the fruit of the Mediterranean carob tree. Combined with premium pork from organic high-welfare pigs has produced a rasher deserving of your attention. This is the first organic nitrate free bacon available to buy from British supermarkets.

Not all bacon is created equal A pig’s diet is an important component of bacon quality and flavour. Our organic pigs thrive in a slow-growing, pasture-raised system that gives them freedom to roam and play within family groups. They forage on herb-rich grass, supplemented with simple cereals and with surplus organic fruit and vegetables for extra variety. If you're looking to enjoy a delicious and healthier version of a breakfast staple, nitrate-free bacon is definitely worth giving a try!
Bring to room temperature. Grill or fry for 4-6 minutes, turning occasionally. Ensure bacon is piping hot before serving.
Helen Browning’s saddleback pigs enjoy a natural diet, free from unnecessary chemicals, antibiotics or GM feed. They spend their days outdoors in family groups on organic pasture and are certified 100% organic by the Soil Association.
