Acrylamide in Food: Analysis, Content and Potential Health Effects provides the recent analytical methodologies for acrylamide detection, up-to-date information about its occurrence in various foods (such as bakery products, fried potato products, coffee, battered products, water, table olives etc.), and its interaction mechanisms and health effects.

The book is designed for food scientists, technologists, toxicologists, and food industry workers, providing an invaluable industrial reference book that is also ideal for academic libraries that cover the domains of food production or food science.

As the World Health Organization has declared that acrylamide represents a potential health risk, there has been, in recent years, an increase in material on the formation and presence of acrylamide in different foods. This book compiles and synthesizes that information in a single source, thus enabling those in one discipline to become familiar with the concepts and applications in other disciplines of food science.

About Vural Gökmen

Since Aug 2011, Professor Gokmen has been serving as founding president of the National Food Technology Platform of Turkey. He is a leading expert on food science and has contributed greatly to the understanding of process-derived effects on quality and safety of foods. He has also contributed to the development of advanced analytical methodologies for the determination of processing contaminants in foods. He has lectured nationally and internationally. Professor Gokmen has published over 200 articles, which includes 145 peer-reviewed manuscripts based on original research and 8 book chapters. He is currently associate editor in Elsevier journal Food Research International. Professor Gokmen graduated in 1990 with food engineering degree, and gained his PhD degree in 1998. In 2004, he was awarded as outstanding young scientist by the Turkish Academy of Sciences, and in 2007 he received the science incentive award by Scientific and Technological Council of Turkey. In his career Professor Gokmen has carried out national and international research projects related to different aspects of food science. He has collaborated with research groups in Italy, Spain, Germany, France, Netherland, USA, UK, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Serbia, Belgium, and Denmark. Professor Gokmen has founded Food Research Center at Hacettepe University in 2010, and he served as founding director until Feb 2013.
