Butylated Hydroxytoluene (BHT) Market size is projected to surpass USD 425 million by 2030, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.
The butylated hydroxytoluene demand for rise in coming years owing to the introduction of the Food Chemical Reassessment Act of 2021. Under the act, the U.S. FDA would create a new Office of Food Safety Reassessment, that would be responsible for evaluating the safety of certain chemicals like butylated hydroxytoluene, that are presently allowed on the market under the GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) rule, at least every three years.

In the food and beverage industry, butylated hydroxytoluene is commonly used for preventing or delaying the rancidity of oils and fats, and the loss of activity of fat-soluble vitamins in foods. The chemical is also used with other chemicals for the purpose of performing a synergistic antioxidant activity, such as with citric acid, ascorbic acid, or phosphoric acid.
Processed foods that are most likely to contain butylated hydroxytoluene comprise prepared cereal products, chewing gum, prepared snacks, active dry yeast, potato flakes, frozen convenience foods, enriched rice products, dried and processed meat, and shortening.
Furthermore, butylated hydroxytoluene is also used as a chemical preservative in animal feeds and drugs. The primary grain which is utilized in the feed industry is corn. However, its nutrition and quality would be influenced during the shelf life owing to the high content of unsaturated fatty acids in the corn embryo, that is prone to oxidative rancidity. Butylated hydroxytoluene can be utilized for the prevention of oxidative deterioration in corn via the removal of free radicals.
Soaring utilization of butylated hydroxytoluene for skin care and cosmetics
Butylated hydroxytoluene is deployed in a wide range of cosmetic products, comprising certain formulas that contain fats or in aqueous emulsions containing plant extracts or certain active ingredients. The compound is also used in certain products for the stabilization and protection of the raw materials themselves.
As BHT can provide resistance to high temperatures, it is very useful in the manufacturing processes of certain raw materials. Some common personal care and cosmetics products with BHT comprise soap, lotion, shampoo, skin care products, body wash, makeup, perfume, lipstick, and hair oil.
In addition to the above factors, the product is set to witness a robust demand in the Asia Pacific region owing to the rapid expansion of the industrial sector, where BHT is used as a lubricant and in the production of plastic and rubber. Furthermore, the automotive industry in the region is also growing at a fast pace, pushing the consumption of butylated hydroxytoluene in the forthcoming years.
Is BHT safe for consumption?
Authorized parties comprising the EFSA, FDA, and JECFA have approved the safety of butylated hydroxytoluene. However, customers are afraid of the possible side effects of BHT at high doses.
As stated by the FDA, butylated hydroxytoluene comes under the GRAS category and is utilized as an antioxidant alone or in integration with BHA with the maximum level from 0.001 per cent to 0.02 per cent as an emulsion stabilizer for processed potato products and shortenings in dry breakfast cereals.

In addition, the compound is listed as an authorized food additive in Commission Regulation (EU) No 231/2012 and comes under the “additives other than colours and sweeteners” category.
In a nutshell, the multiple butylated hydroxytoluene uses across various applications is expected to bolster product demand through the ensuing years.
