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.
Sodium bisulphite works by releasing sulphur dioxide gas, which inhibits bacterial and fungal growth and prevents the discoloration and deterioration caused by common chemical reactions.
