PMID:  4018315     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The current toxicological status of sulphiting agents is reviewed, including evidence of adverse reactions to sulphited foods by a sub-population of asthmatics. Against this background are assessed the applications and benefits of sulphiting agents in foods. It is concluded that further information is required to determine the magnitude of risk and that, in the interim, the controlled use of sulphiting agents is justifiable.
