Major sources of acrylamide exposure include diet (especially starchy foods cooked at high temperatures such as french fries) and tobacco smoke. Acrylamide exposures are believed to be low from other sources such as grouts, adhesives, and polyacrylamide gels used in many consumer products (e. g. , diapers) and in drinking-water treatment. The CDC has measured the hemoglobin adducts of acrylamide and its metabolite glycidamide.
Evidence from animal studies shows that acrylamide and its metabolite glycidamide are genotoxic and carcinogenic: they damage DNA and cause cancer. Evidence from human studies that dietary exposure to acrylamide causes cancer is currently limited and inconclusive.
 The roasting process revealed 200 - 600 micrograms/kg of acrylamide among Japanese mugicha.  The same article notes that this is far less than the amount found in potato crisps and other whole potato snack foods which had levels >1000 µg / kg. Only a few grams of roasted barley are used to make a cup of tea. The article does not propose that the full amount of acrylamide found in the dry roasted barley is ingested when the grains are soaked in hot water and then discarded. Acrylamide and its metabolite, glycidamide.
