  • sulfate
  • Sulfate and Sulfite are frequently added to food and medications, including vitamins and over the counter drugs in order to preserve the item or enhance the texture. (change.org)
  • Millions of people are sensitive and intolerant of both chemicals and because the FDA does NOT require food and drug manufacturers to label their items as containing sulfate/sulfite if the chemical was added to the ingredient as purchased/ or if the item comes from another country MILLIONS ARE SUFFERING unnecessarily. (change.org)
  • Thus, those of us allergic to the ingredients suffer because we cannot tell if there is sulfate/sulfite in the product or not. (change.org)
  • Since the FDA dows acknowledge that sulfate/sulfite are known carcinigens, we are all in danger. (change.org)
  • Join me in demanding that the FDA ban the use of sulfate/sulfite for all products sold in the US regardless of their origin. (change.org)
  • Because sulfate/sulfite are poisons that we're just being able to identify. (change.org)
  • Chemical
  • Sulfite pulps now account for less than 10% of the total chemical pulp production and the number of sulfite mills continues to decrease. (wikipedia.org)
  • no labeling of sulfite because the chemical was applied outside of the US even though it is being sold in the US. (change.org)
  • wine
  • If you think you are allergic to wine because of sulfites you are likely mistaken, and when we know your reason we will enlighten you instead of scare you with so-called facts. (wines.com)
  • I don't know why anyone would want to drink sulfite free wine. (wines.com)
  • If people say they are allergic to sulfites and cannot drink wine because they get a headache, then they are misinformed. (wines.com)
  • The Sulfite Calculator is a simple yet very useful tool to quickly calculate the amount of sulfite needed to adequately protect a wine. (winemakermag.com)
  • It calculates the amount of sulfite based on the difference between the current and desired free SO2 levels for any given volume of wine. (winemakermag.com)
  • It can be used to quickly determine the amount of sulfite to be added when wine parameters, for example, pH, are not needed in the calculation. (winemakermag.com)
  • When a value for pH is entered, the Sulfite Calculator uses this value along with the type of wine, alcohol content, temperature and desired molecular SO2 to calculate a recommended free SO2 level. (winemakermag.com)
  • Since microorganisms thrive at higher pH, greater amounts of sulfite are needed to ensure that there is sufficient molecular SO2 to protect the wine against microbial spoilage. (winemakermag.com)
  • When adding sulfite to wine, it is recommended to make larger, infrequent additions as opposed to smaller, frequent additions. (winemakermag.com)
  • In the above example of the tannic red wine requiring 60 mg/L of free SO2, the full dose of sulfite required to achieve 60 mg/L of free SO2 should be added, as opposed to, for example, adding 30 mg/L now and 30 mg/L in one month. (winemakermag.com)
  • I have seen some misinformation regarding sulfites in wine, and I have to correct them. (wines.com)
  • So, are you adding some of those unnatural compounds to your wine to remove the natural sulfites? (wines.com)
  • I would much rather drink the natural sulfites in wine, than to have them removed with one of these unnatural compounds. (wines.com)
  • I'm sorry Tim, but you did not my question about the natural sulfites in wine. (wines.com)
  • There is absolutely no wine produced anywhere that contains 0 ppm of sulfites. (wines.com)
  • This last DOES NOT mean that the wine contains zero ppm sulfites. (wines.com)
  • Sulfites have been used in wine-making for centuries. (clevelandclinic.org)
  • Sulfites continue to be used in potatoes, shrimp, beer and wine, and are also used in the pharmaceutical industry. (clevelandclinic.org)
  • one ppm is equivalent to less than 1 mg. of sulfites in a full 750ml bottle of wine. (wines.com)
  • I have a problem with sulfites in large quantities, and it's been russian roulette with drinking wine. (egullet.org)
  • Any wine claiming to be sulfite-free is using "creative math" to do so. (egullet.org)
  • More sulfites are usually added to wine, because otherwise it has the shelf life of a pear. (egullet.org)
  • I think the biggest issue I've found is that all the sulphite free wine I've had tastes different to "normal" wine. (egullet.org)
  • Homemade wine usually has MORE sulfites. (egullet.org)
  • fermentation
  • For example, it can be used to determine how much sulfite is needed to achieve 100 mg/L free SO2 to stop an active fermentation, such as when wanting to keep natural residual sugar. (winemakermag.com)
  • headaches
  • Secondly, sulfites do NOT cause headaches, as Foodie alluded to. (wines.com)
  • Clarification: rereading my note makes it seem that I am saying Foodie said sulfites cause headaches - not what I meant, just the opposite. (wines.com)
  • I blame the "headaches" most people experience on the alcohol, not the sulfites. (egullet.org)
  • liquor
  • The spent cooking liquor from sulfite pulping is usually called brown liquor, but the terms red liquor, thick liquor and sulfite liquor are also used (compared to black liquor in the kraft process ). (wikipedia.org)
  • Recent developments in Chemrec's black liquor gasification process, adapting the technology to use in the sulfite pulping process, could make second generation biofuels production an alternative to the conventional recovery boiler technology. (wikipedia.org)
  • dose
  • In most cases, the initial solution dose is too small for the sulfite-sensitive person to react to, so increasing doses are given, waiting 20-30 minutes between steps. (clevelandclinic.org)
  • reactions
  • Sulfites can and do cause life-threatening reactions, primarily respiratory, in a very rare subset of people. (wines.com)
  • Although reactions to sulfites were recognized initially with salad bars in restaurants, this has not been a source for sulfite exposure for more than two decades. (clevelandclinic.org)
  • free
  • The calculated recommended free SO2 value can then be entered as the new desired SO2 level to calculate the amount of sulfite to be added. (winemakermag.com)
  • 1. Which sulfites are you referring to--total (bound) or free? (wines.com)
  • Some of the dosage forms listed on this page may not apply to the brand name Clinisol Sulfite-Free. (drugs.com)
