So, what is sulfiting agents?

Sulfiting agents refer to a group of food additives that are commonly used in the food industry to preserve the color, flavor, and texture of various foods. These agents release sulfur dioxide gas, which acts as an antimicrobial and antioxidant agent, preventing the growth of bacteria and preserving the freshness of the food. Sulfiting agents are often added to dried fruits, wine, beer, and processed foods, such as potato chips and crackers. However, they can cause allergic reactions in some individuals, particularly those with asthma or sulfite sensitivity, making it important for food manufacturers to label their use on packaging.
