With a view to supporting the provisions of the current Korean food code for the detection of Benzo[a]pyrene, various analytical methods of detection in foods were evaluated and established in terms of linearity, limits of detection/quantitation, efficiency, and accuracy, amongst others. It was observed that to improve the technologies involved in the application of these methods, complicated and combined preparation processes of foods, including extraction, separation and purification, have been the main focus of efforts at optimization. Recently, on-site quick reaction for the detection of hazardous substances in the environment and food materials aims at developing simplified examination processes, such as lable-free and non-invasive technological analysis, to reduce the costs and time involved in the examination. Herein, current benzo[a]pyrene detection methods are reviewed in addition to new Raman spectroscopy-based trials established to pursue improve the speed, simplicity and suitability of testing.
