Although the aim of cooking foods is to make them more appetising and microbiologically safe, it is now thought that cooking and food processing at high temperatures generate various kinds of toxic substances, such as heterocyclic: amines and acrylamide, through the Maillard reaction. The book discusses the health risks posed by heat-induced toxicants, it also covers bio-monitoring, exposure assessment and risk assessment as well as the risks of special compounds. The final part is concerned with the key area of. minimising the formation of harmful compounds in food products.
