: The consumption of plant-based beverages as an alternative to cow's milk has recently gained vast attention worldwide. The aim of this work is to monitor the intake of Bisphenol A (BPA), Bisphenol B (BPB) and Bisphenol S (BPS) in the Italian population through the consumption of these foodstuffs. Specifically, the development and validation of an analytical procedure for the quantitative determination of the analytes by liquid chromatography coupled to tandem mass spectrometry was reported. Thirty-four samples of plant-based beverages (soya, coconut, almond, oats and rice) of popular brands marketed in Italy were analyzed. BPA was found in 32% of the samples, while BPB was found in 3% of the samples. The risk assessment using the Rapid Assessment of Contaminant Exposure (RACE) tool demonstrated that there was no risk for all population groups, when using the current Tolerable Daily Intake (TDI) of 4 ng/kg body weight (bw)/day as a toxicological reference point. In contrast, using the new temporary TDI of 0.04 ng/kg bw/day, the existing risk was found to be real for all population groups. If this value were to become final, even more attention would have to be paid to the possible presence of BPA in food to protect consumer health.

Abstract

: The consumption of plant-based beverages as an alternative to cow's milk has recently gained vast attention worldwide. The aim of this work is to monitor the intake of Bisphenol A (BPA), Bisphenol B (BPB) and Bisphenol S (BPS) in the Italian population through the consumption of these foodstuffs. Specifically, the development and validation of an analytical procedure for the quantitative determination of the analytes by liquid chromatography coupled to tandem mass spectrometry was reported. Thirty-four samples of plant-based beverages (soya, coconut, almond, oats and rice) of popular brands marketed in Italy were analyzed. BPA was found in 32% of the samples, while BPB was found in 3% of the samples. The risk assessment using the Rapid Assessment of Contaminant Exposure (RACE) tool demonstrated that there was no risk for all population groups, when using the current Tolerable Daily Intake (TDI) of 4 ng/kg body weight (bw)/day as a toxicological reference point. In contrast, using the new temporary TDI of 0.04 ng/kg bw/day, the existing risk was found to be real for all population groups. If this value were to become final, even more attention would have to be paid to the possible presence of BPA in food to protect consumer health.
