Although synthetic antioxidants such as Butylated hydroxyl anisole (BHA), Tertiary-butyl hydroquinone (TBHQ), and Butylated hydroxyl toluene (BHT) are in use, concerns against synthetic substances have not been dissipated.
Synthetic food additives, such as butyl hydroxyl anisole (BHA), are normally used by the food industry in order to control lipid oxidation, although these compounds are considered toxic to human health [1-3].
