Abstract: This background document was developed prior to the workshop and was used by the working group in its discussion of the current state of knowledge regarding the toxicity and metabolic consequences of acrylamide in food and in identifying data gaps and conclusions regarding what research would fill those gaps and what research should occur first. Through the course of the working group’s discussion of the state of knowledge, various hypotheses were raised to help formulate specific research projects that might fill the identified data gaps. Some modifications were made to the background document as a result of the working group’s discussion and input, but the document should not be considered to necessarily represent the consensus views of the working group or of any individual participant in the working group.
