The nitrate and nitrite contents in cheese of the Gouda type, produced by the Milk Complex of Havanna, were investigated and compared with those found in 5 types of imported cheese consumed in Cuba. No significant differences were found in the mean value (mean) of NaNO3, whereas in the mean value (mean) of NaNO2 differences were found when comparing all cheeses against each other. From these results it is inferred that the consumption of Gouda type cheese does not represent an important contribution to the daily intake of nitrates and nitrites, precursors in the synthesis of cancerogenic N-nitroso compounds.
