I would guess either you aren't getting enough prebiotics to feed the bacteria that wants to eat those things? Or those intolerances were always there, and the previous ones were just loud enough to drown out the new ones.

While the basic concept about Paleo says you must have meat/eggs, veggies and fat in each meal, I found a few paleo blogs/sites having some breakfast recipes without any meat/egg. Is that paleo enough?

If you don't have a sulphite sensitivity (and in truth, it's a minority who do), then polish off the bottle. If the idea bothers you, don't buy it again. Sulphite sensitivity isn't widespread.
