So, what is polybutene?

Polybutene is a synthetic hydrocarbon polymer that is often used in the food industry as a food additive. It is a clear, odorless, and tasteless liquid with a high molecular weight, making it an excellent thickener, lubricant, and film-forming agent. Polybutene is also resistant to oxidation, heat, and water, making it a popular choice for use in a variety of food products such as chewing gum, candy, and baked goods. As a food ingredient, polybutene is generally recognized as safe by regulatory agencies, and its use is closely monitored to ensure consumer safety.
