1 in 4 wine lovers are sensitive to the sulfites in wine.
It’s not about drinking too much: when complaints occur even after 1 or 2 glasses of wine, very often the cause is sulfites.
Why didn’t I know this?
Obviously it is not in the wine industry’s interest for these effects to become common knowledge, so there is not a lot of publicity about the effect of sulfites. Some industry spokespeople even deny the effects of sulfites, despite extensive advice from dieticians and the fact that sulfites are one of the most common allergens in Europe. Why else would there be a warning required on every bottle of wine that contains more than 10mg per litre?
For more information about sulfite sensitivity, please contact a dietician or surf the internet. We are not allowed by European law to explain on our website what complaints a sensitivity for sulfites can give.
