Ethoxyquin Properties


Molecule Structure Image



Ethoxyquin is a quinoline-based antioxidant used as a food preservative and a pesticide. It is commonly used as a preservative in pet foods to prevent the rancidification of fats. There has been some speculation that ethoxyquin in pet foods might be responsible for multiple health problems. Ethoxyquin has been shown to cause mortality in fish. It is also commonly used in spices to prevent color loss due to oxidation of the natural carotenoid pigments.
