So, what is potassium hydrogen sulfite?

Potassium hydrogen sulfite, also known as potassium bisulfite, is a food ingredient that is commonly used as a preservative and antioxidant in the food industry. It is a white or yellowish crystalline powder that dissolves easily in water, and has a slight sulfur odor. Potassium hydrogen sulfite is particularly effective at preventing the growth of bacteria and mold in foods, which helps to extend their shelf life. It is often used in processed meats, seafood, and fruits to maintain their freshness and prevent discoloration. Despite its effectiveness as a food preservative, potassium hydrogen sulfite can cause allergic reactions in some people and should be used with caution.
