J Kawahara et al, 2018. Estimation of long-term dietary exposure to acrylamide of the Japanese people, Food Additives and Contaminants: Part A, published online.
Acrylamide is a probable human carcinogen and known human neurotoxin. This study estimated hypothetical long-term dietary exposure to acrylamide of the Japanese people using probabilistic and deterministic approaches by combining the concentration of acrylamide in foods with the amount and frequency of food consumption in the population. Data included acrylamide concentrations in more than 2400 individual food samples from a national survey and the literature from 2004 to 2013. Food consumption amounts were derived from the data of 24,293 Japanese citizens aged 1 year and older in the 2012 National Health and Nutrition Survey. Median lifetime average dietary exposure to acrylamide was estimated as 147-154 ng/kg body weight (bw)/day (95th percentile, 226-261 ng/kg bw/day). The deterministic estimate of lifetime exposure was 158 ng/kg bw/day, and ranged from 119 ng/kg bw/day for the period of life after 60 years old to 409 ng/kg bw/day for the period between1 and 6 years old. This study found that vegetables cooked at a high temperature, coffee, and cooked potato were the major food groups contributing to long-term dietary acrylamide exposure of the Japanese people.
Ja tak, jeg vil gerne modtage nyhedsbrev, når der er noget nyt om kaffe og helbred.
