Yeah, because then they can claim that it's "nitrate-free" and the earnest seekers of more "natural" foods will buy it. I believe this to be a purely North American aberration, but I could be wrong.

Yup. Celery has a lot of nitrates. The juice will make perfectly corned beef.

It lets a sausage maker claim  "no added nitrates" on what is an obviously cured meat.
