So, what is sulfur dioxide?

Sulfur dioxide is a chemical compound with the formula SO2. It is a colorless gas with a pungent odor that dissolves in water to form sulfurous acid. This versatile ingredient is commonly used in food processing and preservation, acting as an antioxidant and antimicrobial agent. It can help prevent the growth of bacteria, yeast, and mold, and can also act as a bleaching agent to help maintain the appearance of food products. While it is generally recognized as safe by regulatory agencies, some people may be sensitive to it and experience respiratory irritation or other symptoms.
