Acrylamide dietary intakes from selected street foods in youth population are estimated. The intake evaluation was carried out by combining levels of acrylamide in food, analytically determined by high performance liquid chromatography, with individual consumption data recorded using a questionnaire applied to a group of 200 students aged 19 to 30. The mean value of acrylamide exposure was recorded to be 0.452 μg/kg bw/day, while the average intakes at 50th and 95th percentile were 0.350 μg/kg bw/day and 1.539 μg/kg bw/day, respectively. The street food categories that contributed the most to acrylamide intake are pizza and French fries. The margins of exposure, based on benchmark dose limits defined for neoplastic effects and peripheral neuropathy, are within the range of values that indicate a concern for public health as defined by European Authority for Food Safety (EFSA), confirming the needed effort to reduce acrylamide dietary exposure.
