So, what is natriumvätesulfit?

Natriumvätesulfit, also known as sodium hydrogen sulfite, is a food preservative commonly used in the food industry to prevent the growth of harmful bacteria and prolong the shelf life of products. This compound is a white, odorless, and water-soluble powder that is derived from sulfur dioxide. In addition to its preservative properties, natriumvätesulfit is also used as a bleaching agent in the production of food and beverages, as well as in the processing of certain fruits and vegetables. Although it has been deemed safe for consumption by regulatory agencies, some individuals may have an allergic reaction to this ingredient.
