TOXICOLOGICAL RISK ASSESSMENT of 3-MCPD and GLYCIDYL ESTERS in CHILDREN CONSUMING POTATO CHIPS in TURKEY

Esra Emerce, Ela Kadioglu

Abstract :

3-Monochloropropane-1,2-diol esters (3-MCPDE) and glycidyl esters (GE) are the contaminants which have been detected in many foods and are of potential toxicological concern in recent years. This study aimed to assess whether these chemicals cause health risks in children considering their amounts in potato chips available for consumption in Turkish market. Based on the conservative scenario in our study, the average daily intake of 3-MCPDE was estimated as 2.41 g/kg bw while at high exposures it was reached to 3.45 g/kg bw. According to the average and the highest consuming levels, margin of exposures (MoEs) for GE were calculated as 2170 and 1478, respectively. The results of this risk assessment study indicate that, daily intake levels of 3- MCPDE and GE were exceeded the safety limits therefore constitute a significant health risk to children with current dietary habits in Turkey
