Author: Tfouni, SAV

Abstract: Different brands and types of commercial cane sugar available oil the Brazilian market were analysed Cor five polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) by HPLC-FL. PAHs were detected in 57% of the samples at levels ranging from not detected to 1.35 mu g/kg. The most commonly found PAH was benz(a)anthracene, found in 51%, of the analysed samples, while dibenz(a,h)anthracene was not detected. The results indicate that the practice of burning sugar cane bet-ore harvest may be responsible I-or the presence of PAHs in commercial cane sugar and suggests that the levels of PAH residues in the final product depend oil the amount of burnt sugar cane being processed and on the steps involved in the sugar refining process.
