Sodium bisulfite is a form of sodium meta-bisulfite that has been dissolved in water. As a reducing agent, it is able to furnish sulfur dioxide to an application where a liquid source would be ideal.Sodium bisulfite is used directly as a bacterial inhibitor in the distilled beverage industries. Sodium bisulfite is also found in the potato, shrimp and cherry processing industries.Sodium bisulfite is an important component in the preparation of dye intermediates. There are also areas of substantial utilization in the processing of wool as well as for the antichlor treatment required of many textile products.Sodium bisulfite plays an important part in the treatment of water.
