    To add onto what intothebackcountry said, sulfites do not usually affect people (most people cannot tell if they are eating sulfites or not). However, people with allergies to sulfite are particularly sensitive to them, same with people with asthma. 

    Some examples of foods that contain sulfite are: wine, molasses, dried fruits, grape juices, etc.
