Celery powder

Celery powder is a dried, ground concentrate prepared from fresh celery that is used as a seasoning and as a food preservative in organic meat products. Several commercial preparations exist, and it can also be made using a food dehydrator. Some celery powders are prepared from celery juice.[1]

Meat preservative

Celery powder contains a significant amount of naturally-occurring nitrate.[2][3][1] In the United States, celery powder is sometimes used as a food preservative in organic meat products, which is allowed per USDA regulations because the nitrate is naturally occurring.[2] USDA regulations do not allow nitrate to be used directly in organic food products.[2] Meats preserved with celery powder include hot dogs and bacon.[4][5] Celery powder prepared from celery juice has been shown to have a nitrate content of approximately 2.75%.[1]
