So, what is métabisulfite de sodium?

Métabisulfite de sodium, also known as sodium metabisulfite, is a white, crystalline powder with a slightly sulfuric odor. It is commonly used as a food preservative due to its ability to inhibit bacterial and fungal growth. It is also used in the production of various foods and beverages, such as wine, beer, and dried fruits. Métabisulfite de sodium is a highly reactive compound that releases sulfur dioxide when dissolved in water, which can contribute to its preservative properties. However, it is important to note that some individuals may be sensitive to sulfites and may experience adverse reactions when consuming products containing this ingredient.
