So, what is metabissulfito de potássio?

Metabissulfito de potássio, also known as potassium metabisulfite, is a white crystalline powder commonly used in the food industry as a preservative, antioxidant, and antimicrobial agent. It is made by combining potassium carbonate and sulfur dioxide, and has a pungent odor. In food production, it is used to prevent the growth of bacteria and yeasts, as well as to preserve the color and flavor of fruits, vegetables, and meats. It is also commonly used in winemaking as a sterilizing agent and to prevent oxidation. However, some individuals may be sensitive to potassium metabisulfite and experience allergic reactions when consuming foods that contain it.
