Evaluations


Evaluation year: 2000
Comments: PTWI, expressed as Sn, including stannous chloride. The 1988 PTWI was not reconsidered and was maintained at the fifty-fifth meeting (2000). The acute toxicity of tin was assessed at the fifty-fifth meeting, but data were insufficient for establishing an acute reference dose. The Committee reiterated the conclusion reached in 1988 that tin concentrations as low as 150 mg/kg in canned beverages and 250 mg/kg in other canned foods may produce acute manifestations of gastric irritation in certain individuals.
Tolerable Intake: PTWI 14 mg/kg bw (1988)
