sulfite-allerySulfite Allergies Are Serious

Add sulfites to the long list of substances a person with allergies or asthma may want to avoid. Sulfites are salts used for preserving processed foods.

Sulfite sensitivity occurs in about 5 percent of adult asthmatics or approxi­mately 500,000 people. The symptoms include hives, itching, flushing, tingling, nausea, and asthmatic symptoms such as wheezing and shortness of breath. In rare cases, shock, heavy sweating, and loss of consciousness may occur. Sulfite sensitivity is more common in people who take steroids for their asthma symptoms.

When shopping for food, always read labels carefully. If you have a sulfite sensitivity, here are some categories to watch for:

  • Pickled products (canned vegetables, pickled vegetables including sauerkraut)
  • Dried fruit (dried fruit snacks, trail mixes, filled crackers)
  • Lemon juice and lime juice (non-frozen)
  • Certain alcoholic beverages (some beer, cocktail mixes, wine, wine coolers)
  • Soups and sauces (seafood based soups, dried soup mixes)
  • Condiments and relishes (horseradish, onion and pickle relishes, pickles, olives, salad dressing mixes, wine vinegar)
  • Certain drugs (cardiovascular drugs, antibiotics, tranquilizers, intravenous muscle relaxants, analgesics (painkillers), anesthetics, steroids and nebulized bronchodilator solutions (used for treatment¬† of asthma).
  • Fish and shellfish (canned clams; fresh, frozen, canned or dried shrimp, frozen lobster, scallops)
  • Processed meats (bacon, sausages, many pork products)
