I can testify that my rare headaches (perhaps ten in my whole life) were always related to sulfites. Since 2008 I brew my own wine and drink only that. No headache since.

I still purchase bottled ReaLemon lemon juice from time to time to keep on-hand (they had jugs of it on sale at Costco last time i needed any and it was cheaper than buying a pile of lemons) for cooking and splashing into water or tea. I somehow... (more)

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.

The sulfites seem to be mainly in foods which are easy to avoid, such as: dried fruits, wine, and dried potatoes. It is possible to get those foods without sulfites. Another way to phrase that is that processed foods are a curse. :) Best... (more)

How bad is this? I love creamed coconut and dried coconut flakes, but sometimes the only ones I can find have sulphur dioxide as an additive (no other additives though). I'm guessing this is not ideal, but does anyone know about... (more)

I'd put that in the "eat it, but seek another source" category. Sulfur dioxide reversibly reacts with certain flavor components (aldehydes) to produce a compound that is less volatile so the flavor of fruits is preserved in drying. When eaten,... (more)

I thought sulfites were commonly used as a preservative on things such as potato chips & corn chips. However, as I was browsing around looking for a potato chip made with olive or coconut oil, it occurred to me that I didn't see sulfites... (more)

I have the sense that it's only listed if added, not as part of a sub-ingredient, unless the overall level exceeds 10ppm
