Potassium bromate is a strong oxidising, synthetically produced chemical that is used as a bleaching agent to whiten flour, and a dough strengthener to allow higher rising. Potassium bromate has been found to be carcinogenic and is banned by most countries for use as a food additive.

Large quantities can cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, abdominal pain, kidney damage and failure. The WHO in 1993 said that this ingredient is no longer acceptable for use as it is a possible carcinogen. Typically used in flour products.
