Abstract

Abstract Chemiluminescence detection was used to analyse 158 samples of commercially available draft, bottled and canned beers of different types for contamination with volatile nitrosamines. Of these samples, 111 (70%) were found to contain N-nitrosodimethylamine, the mean concentration being 2·7 ppb (μg/kg) and the maximum level 68 ppb. N-Nitrosodiethylamine, the only other volatile nitrosamine found, was detectable in only two samples (at 0·5 and 3·0 ppb).
