FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Information About the Document Acrylamide is a monomer used primarily in the production of polyacrylamide polymers. Polyacrylamides are used as a flocculent in water purification, oil recovery, and soil stabilization; and in the manufacturing of a wide range of products as a coating, matrix, additive, or stabilizer. Human exposure to acrylamide occurs primarily in the workplace from dermal contact and inhalation of dust and vapor during processing or use. The public may be exposed to acrylamide through emissions from production facilities, use in consumer products, contaminated drinking water, and cigarette smoke. In early 2002, Swedish scientists reported high concentrations of acrylamide in certain fried, baked, and deep-fried foods. Subsequent research demonstrated that acrylamide forms ‘‘de novo’’ (i.e., newly formed, not present as an environmental contaminant) during high temperature cooking of carbohydrate-rich foods that contain asparagine and in a few other food processes. Considerable research is on-going to assess the level of and the potential risk from exposure to E:\FR\FM\28DEN1.SGM 28DEN1
