Butylated HydroxyToluene, E321, CAS no.128-37-0, also known as dibutylhydroxytoluene, manufacturing process via chemical synthesis, 4-methylphenol and 2-methylpropene as raw materials. BHT or butyl hydroxytoluene is a fat soluble synthetic compound used to preserve foods and cosmetics to slow down the autoxidation rate of ingredients in a product that can cause changes in the taste or colour. As such, it is primarily used to prevent fats in foods from becoming rancid – but it is also used in cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, jet fuels, rubber, petroleum products, electrical transformer oil, and embalming fluid.
