So, what is metabisulfito potasico?

Metabisulfito potasico, also known as potassium metabisulfite, is a white crystalline powder with a pungent sulfur odor. It is a food preservative that is commonly used in the food industry to prevent spoilage and oxidation of food products. Metabisulfito potasico is an effective preservative due to its ability to inhibit the growth of bacteria and fungi. It is often used in the production of wine, beer, and other fermented foods to prevent the growth of harmful microorganisms. It can also be used as a bleaching agent and as a source of sulfur dioxide in various industrial applications. However, metabisulfito potasico may cause allergic reactions in some individuals and should be used with caution.
