The ways we eat have a huge impact most of the health conditions that we have. Asthma is no different. When diagnosed with the condition, it’s better to avoid certain food items. Dried Fruits belongs to this list.
The presence of sulfites is the reason why we should avoid dried fruits. Sulfites are known to trigger asthma and at the same time, the by-products of sulfite are used as preservatives in dried fruits.
For instance, the components like potassium bisulfite and sodium sulfite are used in dried fruits to increase their shelf life but these can be harmful to asthma patients.
