Abstract

Since the year 1990, the Chinese total diet study (TDS) has become an important tool for monitoring dietary exposures to chemicals and their associated risks to public health. Over the course of five such studies in China, emerging chemical contaminants of public health concern have been recognized and added to the list of TDS analytes. The procedures and results for dioxin and dioxin-like compounds, chloropropanols, and acrylamide are described. Using established TDS methods, useful information on the exposure of the Chinese populations has been obtained that will contribute to informed risk management measures.
