A Review Of Food Toxicity And Kitchen Air Pollution: Cooking Food In The Hospitality Industry

Publication Date Jun 16, 2022

Abstract

Indoor air pollution has a huge negative impact on human health around the world. Hazardous substances emitted due to human activity indoors, such as commercial cooking causes a wide range of health issues and can possibly be fatal. Empirical studies confirm that indoor air quality can be very poor in restaurant kitchens simply from cooking, similar, to a woman cooking food for her family over a smokey stove that is slowly killing her in a sub-Saharan Africa. Commercial cooking has higher intensity and severe instantaneous cooking pollution from volatile organic chemicals compared to home cooking, making health risk awareness of occupational exposure for chefs a priority (Huang et al, 2021), as occupational diseases are often neglected by the managers and practitioners themselves. Keywords: Air Quality, Cooking, Cuisine, Frying, Fuels, Pollution
