So, what is sodium metabisulfite?

Sodium metabisulfite is a food ingredient commonly used as a preservative and antioxidant. It is a white, crystalline powder that dissolves easily in water and has a slightly sulfurous odor.

Sodium metabisulfite is commonly used in the food industry to preserve fruits, vegetables, and seafood. It is also used in the production of wine and beer as a sterilizing agent and to prevent oxidation. However, some individuals may be sensitive to this ingredient and experience allergic reactions, so it is important to use it in moderation.
