What's in the kitchen: sulfites
Some people are allergic to sulfites. The specific symptoms that result can vary considerably, from a severe anaphylactic reaction to asthma, abdominal symptoms, eczema, or headaches. It is added as a preservative to foods such as dried fruits and is also in medications. This is why doctors often ask for allergies to any medications. Sulfa drugs can intensify an MSG reaction.
