Preliminary Acrylamide Monitoring of Domestic Heat-Treated Food Products

국내 가열식품군의 아크릴아마이드 예비 모니터링

  • Published : 2003.08.01

Abstract

Acrylamide is considered as potential carcinogen and genotoxicant. Swedish National Food Administration reported that acrylamide was detected in heat treated starch rich food products. Acrylamide formation during food processing was confirmed by researchers of other countries including UK, Norway, Japan, Switzerland, and United States. It is noticed that the formation of acrylamide in potato products was greater than other food products. It may be due to high concentration of asparagine and glucose in potato products comparing to those of other food products. Interaction between asparagine and glucose during heat treatment resulted in acrylamide formation via Maillard reaction. Analytical method (LC-MS/MS) adopted by FDA was performed to monitor acrylamide concentrations in domestic food products. Acrylamide quantitation in several food categories, such as raw materials, boiled foods, fried foods, hardtacks, breads, breakfast cereals, potato chips, french fries, biscuits, and others, were carried out.
