TBHQ can’t account for more than 0.02 percent of the oils in a food, this is an upper limit of the oil or fat content in foods . The highest limit (1 gram/kg) is permitted for frozen fish and fish products. A number of studies have shown that prolonged exposure to very high doses of TBHQ may be carcinogenic, especially for stomach tumors
