Reduce acrylamide levels in your baked goods and comply with regulations
Growing consumer awareness of acrylamide risks
More and more consumers are becoming aware of the potential risks of acrylamide in food. That’s partly a result of increasing legislative activity around acrylamide. Both the USFDA and the EU warn that acrylamide may have carcinogenic effects. In the US, acrylamide is on the the State of California’s proposition 65 list. In Europe a wide range of foods are subject to acrylamide monitoring under a benchmarking system.
