Butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) is a white, crystalline solid which is odorless or has a faint aromatic odor. Butylated hydroxytoluene is insoluble in water, and freely soluble in ethanol and fatty oils. It has a melting point of 70 °C and an octanol/water partition coefficient of 5.1 2).
Butylated hydroxytoluene, also known as dibutylhydroxytoluene, is a lipophilic organic compound, chemically a derivative of phenol, that is useful for its antioxidant properties. European and U.S. regulations allow small amounts to be used as a food additive. In addition to this use, BHT is widely used to prevent oxidation in fluids and other materials where free radicals must be controlled.
Butylated hydroxytoluene had a greater deleterious effect on the growth of the male than of the rat, especially at the 0.5% dietary level (P less than 0.01). At this level, it also increased the relative weight of the liver (P less than 0.01) but had little effect on brain, heart and kidney in both sexes.
BHA may be used in the manufacture of food packaging materials, with a limit of addition to food of 0.005%. BHA may be used as an antioxidant in defoaming agents for processed foods, not to exceed 0.1% by weight of defoamer. Botterweck AA, Verhagen H, Goldbohm RA, …
