So, what is ethoxyquin?

Ethoxyquin is a synthetic antioxidant commonly used as a food preservative to prevent spoilage and extend the shelf life of animal feed, pet food, and certain human food products. It is particularly effective at preventing the oxidation of fats and oils, which can cause rancidity and off-flavors. Ethoxyquin has been approved for use in food by regulatory agencies around the world and is considered safe at levels commonly used in food. However, some studies have raised concerns about its potential health effects, particularly in high doses or long-term exposure, so it remains a controversial ingredient in the food industry.
