Anyone else have a sulfite sensitivity? I do, and have known about it for a long time, but have been pretending for years that I don't have one. But, I think it's time that I take my health more seriously and start to avoid sulfites since my asthma has gotten much worse in recent years and I tend to get a strong asthmatic reaction to sulfites. Sulfured dried fruit seems to be the worst, so I've been very carefully avoiding them. I've just started to avoid drinking regular wine, but I've still eaten spaghetti sauce that I knew had a bit of (regular) wine in, and I still use wine vinegar. I've also continued eating mustard that clearly has metabisulfite in.

I admit, I've mostly not looked at the "avoid" lists for people with sulfite sensitivity. They are just so long! And it's pretty daunting. I'm definitely still trying to figure out what's a problem for me and what's not.

I had scary allergic reactions to medicine with sulfites as a kid, and have avoided all medicines with sulfites since. I have not done such a careful job with foods (but also don't really eat any of the three items with sulfite you mentioned).
