I'm assuming we are over the threshold, it's being used as a functional ingredient

Aren't dried fruits one of the highest values for sulphites in foods due to composition?  And please correct me if i'm wrong

Maths makes me laugh (not being from the UK)  I've just recently got hooked on 8 out of 10 cats.....and my eyes have been opened to the fact that everyone else just saying Math(not plural) is silly, of course there's more than one type, so it's MATHS in my house now!!!!

For a small investment (touch with sulphite paper indicator) you can see if its "obviously" over the limit.

 

May even work on cats.
