So, what is butylated hydroxytoluene?

Butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) is a synthetic antioxidant commonly used as a food preservative to prevent spoilage and extend shelf life. It is a white crystalline powder that is insoluble in water and soluble in organic solvents. BHT is added to a wide variety of foods, such as baked goods, snack foods, cereals, and chewing gum, as well as in cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and animal feed. While BHT has been deemed safe for consumption by regulatory agencies, some studies have linked its use to potential health concerns, such as cancer and endocrine disruption.
