Conventional methods for furan analysis are confounded by sample preparation procedures, which generate additional furan as the sample is incubated.


Furan is listed as a possible human carcinogen, yet it is produced in many thermally processed foods via diverse mechanisms. This means that furan formation is highly matrix-dependent. Furan often continues to form during product storage.
