What ingredients are used in the smoking process?

The brine we use in the curing and smoking process contains only water, kosher salt, and approximately 0.7% sugar. During the smoking process we use natural hardwoods, primarily alder. Our "peppered" smoked sockeye salmon contains only organic kosher pepper. No nitrites or other preservatives are ever used in Vital Choice smoked salmon products.
