sodium bisulphite


Sodium Bisulphite appears as a white granular powder


Sodium Bisulphite (sodium bisulfite) is used as a food additive to leaven cake mixes (making them rise) as well as being used in meat and poultry processing and most recently in browning prevention of fresh-cut produce.

Although sodium bisulphite is commonly used in human grade food and almost all commercial wines it is also used in animal feed and pet foods. Within the wine making industry sodium bisulphite is used to preserve the colour and aroma of the wine by preventing vinegar forming if bacteria is present.

Available in bags of 25KG for a solid solution and a minimum of 25L for liquid solutions Rigest can supply businesses in the UK and overseas with large volumes of sodium bisulphite.
