Bitrex is the brand name of the most bitter substance yet discovered. It is inert and odourless, but a few parts per million are enough to make products unpalatable.
Evolution has given human beings a strong aversion to the bitterness that often marks out harmful plant or animal material. Studies have shown that children are particularly sensitive to these bitter tastes.
That’s why Bitrex is such a powerful deterrent to accidental swallowing. First used in denaturing alcohol – making it legally unfit for consumption – it is now added to a wide range of toys, household cleaners, pesticides, and DIY and automotive products.
The Bitrex logo, a registered trade mark of Macfarlan Smith, is used under licence by the leading manufacturers and retailers already committed to the Bitrex partnership programme.
