Traditionally the preservation of meat and fish has been drying, spicing, salting, smoking or cooking. Contemporary curing of hams and bacon is achieved by adding safe amounts of synthetic nitrates, salt and sugar. This draws out moisture inhibiting the growth of microbes making preserved food safe to consume before its recommended use-by-date.
Fruits and vegetables have long been known to contain beneficial elements including vitamins, fibre, antioxidants and essential minerals.
Green vegetables such as celery contain high levels of naturally occurring nitrite and nitrate compounds.
Natural Ham - D’Orsogna has conducted extensive research to harness the preserving, flavour enhancing and colour fixing attributes of these naturally occurring fruit and vegetable compounds to create flavoursome ham and bacon for people who prefer all natural ingredients. Our new range has a unique texture, colour (naturally lighter) and flavour that appeals to consumers attracted to products free from artificial ingredients.
“I would like to say thank you. I have been searching so long for a ham that is safe for my 3 year old son
who has a rare gi food allergy called FPIES (food protein induced enterocolitis syndrome)
he can't eat anything that contains corn (maize) (dextrose ), rice, avocado, banana or mango.
We have discovered your all natural unsmoked ham.
Thanks for making a product that doesn't contain his allergens,
you have no idea how fantastic it feels that our son can now enjoy a ham sandwich!”
“I just would like to leave a short comment on '100% natural bacon'.
I am a very health conscious house mum who reads all ingredients when I do grocery shopping.
It is partly due to my boy being allergic to certain type of food and have 2 siblings affected by cancer.
We love bacon (who wouldn't anyway?), however, due to nasties in bacon I've only been eating a minimal amount.
Nowadays, we consumers don't have much choice when doing grocery shopping.
Majority goods we buy off the shelf has nasty ingredient/s. We're not well off so cannot afford all fancy organic food stuff
yet I'd rather cut down amount of food to buy quality ingredients for health benefits.
I just want to thank you for producing good product I can truly enjoy with my family knowing it won't harm us and tastes great.
What is even better is, I don't need to drive a long way to get it. I usually take time to complaint or request things to change.
In this occasion, I'm happy writing to say 'Thank you!'.
There are many consumers out there who are conscious what is in ingredients.
It may be harder and cost more to produce good and healthy products yet would you keep working on it please? Have a blessed day."
“Thank you SO much for your 100% natural completely preservative free bacon!
I'm allergic to the preservatives normally used and haven't had bacon in about 14 years!
Was so excited to find it in WW's. And it tastes amazing! Thank you!
Just wanted to say thank you for the natural ham range!
It tastes so good, and once again, doesn't mess up my allergies!
Please thank the team again for a wonderful, delicious product!”
