    Frequently Asked Questions:

    What Is Uncured Pepperoni? Pepperoni is a spicy style of salumi made with finely ground pork and beef that is specially seasoned with robust spices like paprika, black pepper and garlic. Uncured pepperoni just refers to the practice of not using any unnatural methods of preservation. Uncured meats are still preserved, but instead of synthetic nitrates or nitrites, producers opt for natural curing methods like salts and other flavorings. Uncured pepperoni does not utilize synthetic chemicals in its preservation process.

    What Are Delallo Uncured Pepperoni Slices Made Of? Our Uncured Pepperoni Slices are made with premium cuts of beef and pork that are finely ground and seasoned with fresh garlic and spices.

    Is Uncured Pepperoni Healthier? Uncured pepperoni is not healthier than cured pepperoni. Nitrates and nitrites are preservatives that are still used in the curing process. The difference is that uncured pepperoni utilizes naturally occurring nitrates and nitrites rather than synthetically produced ones.

    Is Uncured Pepperoni Cooked Or Raw? Pepperoni, whether cured or uncured, does not need to be cooked. Both are cured styles that can be eaten without cooking. They are not considered raw as they go through a curing process. The difference is that uncured pepperoni is preserved without the use of synthetic chemicals (nitrates). Uncured pepperoni is safe to eat right from the package and does not require cooking.

    Is Uncured Pepperoni Ready To Eat? Yes, uncured pepperoni is ready to eat right from the package. It is a form of dry sausage that is preserved using natural methods like salt and other flavorings. There is no need to cook pepperoni, whether it is labeled cured or uncured.

    What Is The Difference Between Pepperoni And Uncured Pepperoni? Pepperoni and uncured pepperoni are essentially the same. Both are dry cured sausages. The difference is that the “uncured” style of pepperoni is preserved using nitrates and nitrates that occur naturally rather than synthetic chemicals.

    What Is The Difference Between Pepperoni Slices And Pepperoni Sticks? Pepperoni slices are just pepperoni sticks that have been sliced for convenience. Pepperoni slices are ready to use as ingredients on favorites like pizzas, flatbreads and sandwiches, but also for entertaining. Serve them alongside specialty cheeses and gourmet garnishes for an easy charcuterie plate or cheese board.

    What Is The Difference Between Pepperoni And Salami? Salami originated in Italy, where the word is used to describe a style of cured, salted meat that is encased and often seasoned for a zesty or spicy flavor. Salami has a long history, as it was created before modern methods of preservation (like refrigeration). Curing meats is a safe way to preserve them for longer periods of time.

    In the U.S., when we refer to “salami,” we are often speaking of Genoa Salami, which is a style of cured coarsely ground meats similar to pepperoni. The difference is in their recipe. Genoa Salami is softer with a lighter coloring and its flavor is generally milder and less spicy than pepperoni.

    Does Uncured Pepperoni Go Bad? According to the USDA, hard or dry sausage products (such as uncured pepperoni) that are whole and unopened can be stored indefinitely in the refrigerator or up to 6 weeks in the pantry. After opening the package, the meat can be refrigerated for up to 3 weeks. This is a general recommendation, so be sure to check the package for information relevant to the particular brand of product you have.
