Dear Poulami,

 

Not sure about the gherkins but I found this -

 

Note
1.      Maximum levels are expressed as SO2  in mg/kg or mg/l as appropriate and relate to the total
quantity, available from all sources.
2.      An SO2 content of not more than 10 mg/kg or 10 mg/l is not considered to be present.
