Abstract: The daily intake of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in eleven Brazilian metropolitan areas was estimated based on the average per capita food consumption data, inferred from a household economic survey as published by the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics (IBGE), and on the content of total and carcinogenic PAHs in selected food products. The highest levels of PAHs were found in oils and fat (32.9 μg/kg), followed by sugar (15.4 μg/kg) and vegetables (11.9 μg/kg). The highest daily intake of total PAHs was observed in Brasília (7.7 μg/person/day) while relatively lower intakes were shown by the Northeast region: Fortaleza (4.7 μg/person/day) and Salvador (5.0 μg/person/day). A greater contribution of the carcinogenic fraction to the total dietary intake of PAHs was observed in Curitiba, with an average of 2.2 μg/person/day. Oil and fat products were the main dietary source of PAHs in ten of the eleven Brazilian metropolitan areas studied. In Belém the meat group was the most important source of PAH in the diet.
