J Food Process Technol 5: Generally, darker the colour reactipn food product, higher the acrylamide content. Proposed mechanism for formation of the acrylamide in heat treated foods []. The total macro and micro nutrient composition of the diet is mainly obtained from acrylamide containing foods [ 51 ]. However, soybean must be processed before consumption. Nevertheless, the additives should not alter the quality and consumer acceptability of food products.

Acrylamide from Maillard reaction products.

Generally, potato tubers are stored for several months in order to meet the supply throughout the year. Use of product such as amino acids, asparaginase enzyme, cations and antioxidants are reported effective for acrylamide reduction in bakery and cereal products.

The daily intake of acrylamide in human diets was estimated to be 0. A strong positive correlation exists between baking temperature and time and formation of acrylamide; whilst the use of flour with low asparagine content might decrease the content of acrylamide in bakery products.

Potato varieties with low concentrations of reducing sugars can be an effective way to reduce acrylamide concentration [ 77, ]. Amino acids such as glycine, cysteine, methionine, glutathione and lysine on acrylamide formation and its elimination kinetics was assessed in several studies [ – ]. Acrylamide Asparagine Sugars Maillard Reaction. By introducing steam in conventional or traditional baking system, it is possible to reduce the acrylamide content in baked products.


Blanching is an important unit operation in the prediction of French fries production. Maillard reaction has strong influence on pH. Milk is a beverage that is consumed throughout the world.

These studies found that the amount of acrylamide was extremely higher in fried potato products such as French fries and potato chips followed by cereals, crisp breads, biscuits and other bakery products. While foods are processed or cooked at high temperature, a chemical reaction occurs between amino acids and reducing sugars which generate different flavours and brown colour Figure 1.

Introduction The Maillard reaction has been named after the French physicist and chemist Louis Camille Maillard — who initially described it. This study concluded that an extremely hot summer will result in lower acrylamide generation. Acrylamide occurrence in foods is being studied intensively since the original report of high levels of acrylamide found in food that are subjected to high temperature chemitsry 61314 ].

Hypothesized formation mechanism of acrylamide from an amino acid and a lipid.

The composition of potatoes vary with variety to variety [] and it relatively contains high amounts of reducing sugars, which is the major limiting factor in potato products for acrylamide formation of the positive influence of cereal varieties on precursors and acrylamide contents.

Soybeans play important role in cardiovascular diseases, osteoporosis, and cancer [ 8 ]. To date, there is no permissible limits have been set worldwide for acrylamide consumption in diet. July 23, Citation: The strategies developed so far to mitigate acrylamide formation studied on lab conditions, which may not be suitable for commercial process.


Can’t read the image? Dolores del Castillo, N. Maillard reaction is a non-enzymatic browning reaction occurring in foods during baking or frying. Adapted from Peterson [ ]. Acrylamide C 3 H 5 NO; 2-propenamideis a colourless, non-volatile crystalline solid, soluble in water and has a molecular weight of When vegetables are treated at low temperature, prooxidants are generated, whereas treating at high temperature decreases the prooxidants and increases antioxidant properties due to the production of MRPs [ 54 ].

Agri and Aquaculture Journals Dr. A study has shown that when duck meat was cooked by charcoal grilling, deep-frying, roasting, microwave cooking, pan frying, or boiling, MRPs were higher in the pan frying process compared to the other four methods of cooking.

So it is obvious that processing of milk at high temperature may lead to the formation of MRPs. View at Google Scholar D.

Food chemistry: Acrylamide from Maillard reaction products

Intensive frying conditions temperature and time lead to darker fries and higher acrylamide formation. The percentage of acrylamide removal from cookies readtion potato chips having different water activity values is presented in Table 2.

Depending on treatment temperature, furoylmethyl derivatives FM have been found in processed vegetables and fruits like orange juices [ 50 ] and processed tomato products [ 51 ] and also in dehydrated carrots [ 52 ]. Heterocyclic compounds such as pyrazine, oxazole, and thiazoles are primarily responsible for forming flavour in roasted compound.
