Healthy Baking

Reduce acrylamide content in baked goods

Novozymes' Acrylaway® enzymes cut down on acrylamide content in baked goods and other foods by up to 95%.

That’s good news for food manufacturers and consumers who are focused on food safety. Both the EU and the USFDA warn of acrylamide’s possible carcinogenic effects.

For consumers, this means the same delicious taste, texture, flavor and smell. Our Acrylaway® enzymes are a natural solution to healthier baking - with less acrylamide.

But what does it mean for producers? 

What is acrylamide?

Acrylamide is a suspected carcinogen that forms naturally in food during frying, baking or extrusion at high heat and low moisture.

The Maillard reaction creates the golden crust color and delicious flavor of baked goods and roasted coffee. But the Maillard reaction is also when an amino acid is converted into acrylamide.

Acrylamide and food safety

Increasing regulation globally

To comply with increasing regulation and protect their brands, many food manufacturers are looking to reduce the acrylamide levels in their products.

New tougher EU requirements to reduce acrylamide and additional scrutiny from regulatory authorities around the globe are driving companies to take measures to reassure consumers that they care about their health and safety.

Learn more about the new EU regulation that went into effect April 11, 2018, and what you can do about it .

Tests using Novozymes Acrylaway® enzymes at independent institutes and in Novozymes' laboratories have indicated significant reductions in acrylamide levels.
