So, what is e943a?

E943a is a food additive commonly known as butane, which is a colorless and odorless gas. As a food ingredient, it is used as a propellant to create a pressurized environment in aerosol whipped creams, cooking sprays, and other food products. Butane is highly flammable and needs to be handled with caution. However, it is generally considered safe for consumption in small quantities. While some people may have concerns about the use of butane in food products, regulatory agencies around the world have deemed it safe for use as a food additive.
