One google search says, "Never add Sodium Metasulfite to wine". Yet another says to add it. How can things be so opposite?

Possibly because the first search meant to never add ‘sodium’ metabisulfite to wine- and only add ‘potassium’ to wine. Sodium meta works as sanitizer but most don’t recommend to use for So2 in the wine.
The other site that said to add it could just be referring to potassium meta- or ‘sulfites’ in general. But not sodium.
