The present study investigates the presence of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in grilled meat and chicken using modified QuEChERs method. The results found that Benzo(a)Pyrene concentration in charcoal grilled chicken ranged from 0.49-7.20μg/kg and 2.01 μg/kg mean concentration, while for charcoal grilled meat ranged from 2.42-4.48 μg/kg and 0.36 μg/kg mean concentration. The summation of 16PAHs concentrations in term of Benzo(a)Pyrene ranged from 0.03-10.65 μg/kg and mean concentration 3.03 μg/kg for charcoal grilled chicken, while for charcoal grilled meat from 0.10 to 6.49 μg/kg and mean concentration 1.13 μg/kg. The results suggested using of electric grill instead of traditional charcoal grill in order to reduce the contamination of meat and chicken with PAHs where the level of contamination reduced by 100%. The dietary intake for sum of seven carcinogenic PAHs in term of Benzo(a)Pyrene exceed than the average value by 1.6 and 2.3 times for meat and chicken respectively.

Keywords: PAHs, Dietary intake, Benzo(a) Pyrene, Grilled meat, Grilled chicken, Egypt.
