Description of the Low Nitrosamine

Low Nitrosamine are a class of chemical compounds that form when nitrates and amino acids combine. Nitrosamines are found in a variety of rubber products including balloons, gloves, baby bottle,  nipples, and pacifiers, as well as in some processed meats such as hot dogs and cooked bacon, some types of cheese, drinking water, and tobacco smoke. In rubber articles, nitrosamines can form in small quantities when nitrogen oxides in the air interact with residue from chemicals used to speed up the rubber manufacturing process. Typically, three types of nitrosamines are found in rubber articles: N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), N-nitrosodiethylamine (NDEA), and N-nitrosobutylamine (NDBA).
