Hello, I recently ordered some curing salt, or pink salt from my butcher. He assured me it was for curing but after reading a bit online, I discovered that there two different curing salts, #1 and #2. One is nitrite and the other nitrate.

My question is, how can i find out what type of curing salt it is? My butcher and his provider both call it and know it by the name Curing Salt and they seemed lost when I mentioned curing salt #1 and #2. 

Many thanks!
