|Product Overview :||Sulfur dioxide, sulfurous acid and its salts (sulfites) occur in very low concentrations in nature. However, they have been used for a very long time in the industrial production of foodstuffs ("sulfurating"). Sulfur dioxide is used as a preservative in food industry in order to prevent microbial spoilage. The usage of sulfuric acid in the production in wine belongs to the most important techniques in order to improve stability and taste of wine. Sulfite is regarded as being poisonous for cells; in metabolism, it is rapidly oxidized to sulfate and excreted. The sulfite content in foodstuffs is legally prescribed in a number of countries and the content has often to be declared on the label.|
