PMID:  1298648     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The stabilities of nitrate and nitrite in food systems and their reactions in such matrices are reviewed. Particular reference is made to reactions with haem proteins, smoke components and amines in foods, and the chemistry of formation of N-nitroso compounds from food components is discussed. Finally, the methodology available for determination of both volatile and non-volatile N-nitroso compounds is addressed.
