Ethyl Butyrate

Many of the “all natural” orange juices on the market contain high amounts of ethyl butyrate, a chemical that enhances the fragrance of fresh squeezed orange juice. While processing orange juice after the oranges are freshly squeezed, they are then put into steel vats where it tends to lose its natural flavor. To combat this, juice makers add in ethyl butyrate to bring back that familiar fragrance. It’s also found in drinks with cherry, pineapple, mango, guava, bubblegum, peach, apricot, fig, and plum flavorings.
