    It may not have any "chemical" preservatives like BHT etc, but in this case the celery poweder provides the nitrate/nitrite, the lactic acid adjusts the pH to induce fermentation and the starter culture are the bacteria that make this sausage a fermented food, so in essence those are the "preservatives".... thats what keeps the meat from spoiling.

    I admit that my first thought was dirty when I read the subject line of this thread.

    Almost every salami available to me has some type of chemical, preservative, etc. If I could find it uncured, I'd probably eat it, but in moderation.
