They are considered an "asthma trigger" for people who are susceptible to them because they bring on asthma symptoms such as cough, wheezing, or shortness of breath. Sulfites are used as a preservative in many food products to prevent them from spoiling. Some examples of products that contain sulfites include: wine, beer, dried fruits and vegetables, shrimp, and pickles.</p> SulfitosLos sulfitos son un tipo de conservante de alimentos que pueden provocar dificultades para respirar en algunas personas asmáticas.https://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/es/teens/sulfites-esp.html/cdefb244-95db-4977-88c6-7bd40e7d20f3kh:age-teenThirteenToNineteenkh:age-youngAdultEighteenPluskh:clinicalDesignation-allergykh:clinicalDesignation-pulmonologykh:genre-dictionarykh:primaryClinicalDesignation-pulmonologyWords to Know for Teens With Asthmahttps://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/en/teens/asthma-center/words-to-know/af80913e-f47b-46fe-99dc-387482ea53e9
