This FAO/WHO Acrylamide in Food Network was established as a result
of the June 2002 FAO/WHO Consultation on the health Risks of Acrylamide
in Food. The consultation recommended that an international network
on acrylamide in food should be established inviting all interested parties
to share relevant data as well as ongoing investigations.
This network functions as a global resource and inventory of ongoing
research on acrylamide in food. It includes formal research, surveillance/monitoring
and industry investigations, etc. Any interested party may submit
information, and it is hoped that government agencies, research institutions,
and others will share information via the network.
Description of Network Content
This network website currently comprises:
- An interactive database of researchers/data providers
for research published elsewhere
In future the following will be included:
- Information update about the current status of research efforts;
- FAO/WHO updates on information relevant to the health risk
of acrylamide in food
FAO/WHO Ongoing Efforts on Acrylamide in Food INFONET UPDATES
The network also serves as a discussion forum
for active researchers and others in the field. It aims to identify
gaps and overlaps in available
research/information, and make suggestions for how these could be addressed.
Information on these aspects will be posted on this network website.
