- Shrimp dipped in sodium bisulfite solutions of 1.25 and 5.0% were analyzed for residual bisulfite during iced storage for up to 15 days. Most of the bisulfite was located on the shell and was readily leached away by the melting ice. A further reduction in bisulfite occurred when shrimp were rinsed in either water or hypochlorite solutions after storage, with the greatest reductions occurring during the hypochlorite rinses.
