要避免的食品添加剂 – 抗氧化剂 | Food additives to avoid – Antioxidants



BHA –丁基羟基茴香醚(320)–通常可在人造黄油和涂抹酱,沙拉调料,核桃和山核桃以及即食土豆泥中发现。



虽然在允许的低使用量水平上认为BHA是安全的,但可以在食品中用更安全的化学物质(例如维生素E),更安全的工艺方法代替BHA,或者将其简单地排除在外。 如果要避免使用,请检查标签。



BHA – butylated hydroxyanisole (320) – is typically found in margarine and spreads, salad dressings, walnuts and pecans, and instant mashed potato.

It’s listed as “possibly carcinogenic to humans” by WHO’s International Agency for Research on Cancer, and some studies have demonstrated that it causes cancer in rats, mice, and hamsters.

But these cancers are controversial because they occur in the forestomach, an organ that humans don’t have.

Our verdict

While it’s considered safe at the low level of use permitted, BHA can be replaced in foods by safer chemicals (such as vitamin E), safer processes, or simply left out. Check labels if you want to avoid it.
