Browning pattern was developed in aqueous solutions of glucose/glycine mixture under controlled conditions. Browning pattern was definitely influenced by pH of medium and concentration of reactants. Filter paper disks were immersed in diluted solutions of glucose/glycine system and fried in cooking oil. Concentrations of reactants only affected browning pattern of fried filter paper disks and pH effect was obscured at high temperatures. Amorphous brown precipitate was obtained from the lowest pH medium of glucose/glycine system. An attempt was made to characterize the brown pigment produced in the present model system.
