So, what is bisulfites sodium?

Sodium bisulfite is a food preservative commonly used to prevent spoilage and discoloration in a wide range of food products. It is a white, crystalline powder that is water-soluble and has a slightly acidic taste. Sodium bisulfite is also used in the production of wine and beer to inhibit the growth of bacteria and yeast. While generally considered safe for consumption, some individuals may experience allergic reactions to the compound, which can include asthma symptoms or skin irritation. As with all food additives, it is important to use sodium bisulfite in moderation and to follow recommended guidelines for use.
