Pesach FAQs

BHA & BHT

Q. Why do nuts which contain BHA or BHT require hashgachah for Pesach?

A. BHA and BHT (Butylated hydroxyanisole and Butylated hydroxytoluene respectively) do not inherently pose a Pesach concern, but they are often applied to nuts (and other foods) in a soybean oil base. Soybean oil is kitnios; therefore, we cannot recommend items with BHA or BHT unless they are specifically certified for Pesach.
