"BHT butylated hydroxytoluene and BHA are antioxidants. Oxygen reacts preferentially with BHA or BHT rather than oxidizing fats or oils, thereby protecting them from spoilage. In addition to preserving foods, BHA and BHT are also used to preserve fats and oils in cosmetics and pharmaceuticals." - About.com
The antioxidative and preservative nature w/in the container could slow or retard oxidation of the food.
