Aluminium (Al) dietary intake from selected baby foods was estimated for Brazilian infants from the Sao Paulo State by means of a deterministic and a probabilistic estimation. The deterministic exposure assessment was carried out by combining mean levels of Al in 171 samples of baby foods (infant formula, meat/vegetable purees, fruit purees, petit-suisse and cereals), analytically determined by inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectroscopy method, with individual food consumption data. Data on food consumption were generated using a duplicated 24 h recall applied to the parents o…
