So, what is e222?

E222 is a food additive that is commonly used as a preservative in various food and beverage products. Chemically known as sodium bisulfite, this ingredient is a white crystalline powder that is highly soluble in water. It is used to prevent the growth of bacteria, yeast, and other microorganisms that can spoil food and cause foodborne illness. E222 is often used in dried fruits, wine, beer, and other processed foods to extend their shelf life and improve their color and flavor. However, some people may be sensitive to this ingredient and experience adverse reactions, so it is important to check food labels carefully before consuming any product that contains E222.
