sulfites: the spice of death

Answered on August 19, 2014

My question pertains to sulfite content in foods, commonly used as a preservative. I have been consuming alot of shredded coconut and a variety of spices all of which have sulfites listed on the package contents. Does anyone out there know whether this would be a health hazard when regularly consumed? My research has brought up only wine-related info. and as a teetotaler this is of no interest to me. I hear of allergies to sulfites but no signs/symptoms or indications of what makes one prone to these alleged 'allergies'. ANy sulfite-related experiences? Should I be concerned?

The closest one is Winnipeg, MB, 5 hours away. I also intend to est. a dog-breeding business 'on or in relation to' the land as well as convert my domicile into a personal training studio/gym.

Who knew that Edmonton was more civilized than Northern Ontario! Isn't there a Great Canadian Superstore somewhere nearby? That is where I get mine. (Cool idea about the apiary, BTW - I read your profile.)

The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition conducted a study of 2,700 people, and their alcohol habits. They found that men who had one to two glasses of wine per day had 4 percent more bone density than those who had none. Women had 5 to 8 percent denser bones. Beyond two glasses a day, the bone strength diminished. Forget the calcium tablets and drink up !

Not everyone has the resources...I am in the isolated bush of NWOntario now. There are few coconuts on these trees and in the stores(Hence my stocking up on the shredded).

Plus you get a great workout opening them up and prying out the pulp.

I just started buying whole coconuts, for about $2, and don't have to worry about preservatives!
