Trace Elements in Food

Barbara Szteke (editor and symposium chair)
Food Additives and Contaminants, 2002, Vol. 19, No. 10, 905-1002

Some trace elements are known to be essential to life, but of course, even these elements can have toxic effects depending on the chemical form, dose, route of absorption, and a host of other factors. Other trace elements, especially heavy metals, are well known as potentially "toxic" elements. Diseases caused by improper nutrition, including the consumption of food contaminated by trace elements, constitute serious problems in today’s world.

This volume of Food Additives and Contaminants includes papers presented at the 1st IUPAC International Symposium on Trace Elements in Food that took place in Warsaw, Poland, on 9—11 October 2000. (See conference report, May 2001 CI, Vol. 23, No. 3, p. 84) The symposium, which attracted some 128 participants from 27 countries, was initiated by the IUPAC Food Chemistry Commission and coorganized by the Polish Academy of Sciences, the Warsaw University of Technology, the Polish Food Technologist’s Society, and the Institute of Agriculture and Food Biotechnology. The conference program included 25 oral presentations, supplemented by 56 posters. This volume includes papers covering the following subjects:

  • sources and translocation of trace elements in the trophic chain
  • the occurrence and function of trace elements in food and the related international legislative aspects
  • the interaction of trace elements with other food components-toxicological and nutritional aspects
  • the significance of element speciation in food and its implication for human health
  • advances in methods for analyzing trace elements in different food matrices
  • the quality assurance and reference materials for their analysis
  • measurement in food from a metrology viewpoint
  • the question of traceability in food measurements
