Eight samples of 'processed food flavours' (PFFs), chosen from five different categories, were analysed for their mutagenic activity using the Ames Salmonella assay, and also for the presence of eight heterocyclic aromatic amines (HAAs), namely 2-amino-3-(trideuteromethyl)imidazo[4,5-f]quinoline (IQ), 2-amino-3,8-dimethyl-imidazo[4,5-f]quinoline (MeIQ), 2-amino-3,8-dimethylimidazo[4,5-f]quinoxaline (MeIQx), 2-amino-3,7,8-trimethylimidazo[4,5-f]quinoxaline (7,8-DiMeIQx), 2-amino-3,7,8… CONTINUE READING
