Does anybody know if Evian water contains hidden sulfites? I have many food intolerances and have trouble getting enough minerals in my diet. The calcium magnesium and bicarbonate in Evian would probably be of a big help to me. I have trouble eating vegetables and fruit and taking supplements. Potassium gluconate helps but it tears up my esophagus and stomach. I can't take it. I would be very happy to know about Evian and even other similar waters high in bicarbonate. I need a water with bicarbonate. I have read that some people get sulfite reactions to bottled water but i don't know if its sulfites or something else. Anyone have personal experience?

I did a search but couldn't find previous thread.

Welcome to the forum, marry.

I looked for the right link but it seems not to work anymore. I think it was in this very long thread:

Most bottled water does have sulfite to some degree, some more than others.

Personally, I'd get my minerals from vegetables. They're more likely to be in a form that we can use.

Do you know if you really have an intolerance to sulfite? Have you looked up your trigger foods with the keywords food allergy or food intolerance?

There are many links to sulfite allergy and intolerance in the link above.

Keep us updated. It helps others.
Best wishes.

Yes I have looked up the trigger foods. I have multiple intolerances. I am pretty sure on the sulfites. I can get chest pain and an erratic heart beat for a week or more after a trigger food. It feels like it builds in the system. Corn syrup is definitely suspect. Processed food is no good. Nutritional shakes. I am getting chest pain squeezing triggering for around a week or sometimes more or less. Its cumulative. But I also I have trouble with high phenol foods giving me other symptoms, so its just hard to eat even natural vegetables and fruits. I often get pretty stuck. I even start reacting to supplements when I over do it and eat something suspected of having sulfites. It's cumulative. I am trying to stay away from additives and fillers. I had trouble after shrimp and non organic crackers a long time ago in the past.

I read that pectin is no longer sulfited. Pectin is in the non fat Dannon yogurt that I have been eating. I am getting chest pain/squeezing. but the pain didnt start until I added lactaid fast act caplets to my yogurt. (I found out I cant tolerate digesting yogurt without it after eating yogurt like 3 or 4 times, I wont try yogurt again without lactase). I think there are probably hidden sulfites in the caplets, so I ordered lactase drops without the additives. I hope its not the pectin. I really like the nonfat yogurt, its always fresh and not sour. I cant eat sour food.

After getting sick off of a nutritional shake, I start getting sick off of supplements that I didnt react to with chest pain before, so I think its probably cumulative sulfites.
