So, what is sodium sulphite?

Sodium sulphite is a chemical compound that is commonly used as a food preservative and antioxidant. It is a white, crystalline powder with a slight sulfur odor and a salty taste. Its chemical formula is Na2SO3, and it is soluble in water. Sodium sulphite is often added to food products such as wine, dried fruits, and vegetables to prevent discoloration and spoilage. It can also be used in the production of paper, textiles, and other industrial applications. However, sodium sulphite can cause allergic reactions in some people, so it is important to read food labels carefully if you have a sensitivity to sulfites.
