So, what is disulfite de sodium?

Disulfite de sodium, also known as sodium metabisulfite, is a white crystalline powder commonly used as a food preservative and antioxidant. It is a derivative of sulfur dioxide, and its chemical formula is Na2S2O5. Sodium metabisulfite works by releasing sulfur dioxide gas, which prevents the growth of microorganisms and helps to maintain the color and flavor of food products. It is often added to dried fruits, wines, and processed foods such as potato chips and crackers. While generally considered safe for consumption, some people may experience allergic reactions or respiratory problems when exposed to this ingredient.
