So, what is sodium metabisulfites?

Sodium metabisulfite is a chemical compound commonly used as a food preservative and antioxidant. It is a white crystalline powder that dissolves easily in water and has a distinct sulfur dioxide odor. This ingredient is commonly used in the food industry to prevent the growth of bacteria and fungi, and to maintain the freshness and quality of food products. It can also be found in wine and beer as a preservative, and in some dried fruits to prevent discoloration. However, some individuals may be sensitive to sodium metabisulfite and experience allergic reactions, such as difficulty breathing or swelling.
