Sodium sulfite Food Grade fulfils the purity criteria for food additives set by Directive (EU) 231/2012, the Joint (FAO/WHO) Expert Committee on Food Additives (JECFA) in the Codex Alimentarius as well as the one contained in the Food Chemical Codex. It also fulfils the specification limits of the effective edition of the European Pharmacopoeia and of the DIN EN 12124:2012 (chemicals used for treatment of water intended for human consumption).

For use as a food additive, sodium sulfite Food Grade has a limited license according to E-No. 221. Sodium sulfite is used as a preservative in foods for the prevention of discoloration in dried foods, in condiments and pickled foods and for the preservation of wine and pharmaceutical preparations. In baking sodium sulfite improves processing and consistency of doughs. In industrial water treatment, sodium sulfite is added to water to reduce oxygen and chlorine to help control the corrosive tendency. In wastewater treatment, sodium sulfite is used to remove residual free and combined chlorine to protect aquatic life from toxic effects of residual chlorine. Additionally, formation of harmful chlorinated compounds in drinking water through reaction of residual chlorine with water-born organic materials can be reduced. Sodium sulfite can be easier to use than sulfur dioxide gas for chlorine control. Sodium Sulfite is available in 25 kg LDPE bags. View product documents using the menu to the rightbelow.
