Acrylamide in fried potato products


Luning, Pieternel A and Sanny, Maimunah (2016) Acrylamide in fried potato products. In: Acrylamide in Food: Analysis, Content and Potential Health Effects. Elsevier, London, Unitted Kingdom, pp. 159-179. ISBN 9780128028322


High acrylamide levels have been detected in fried potato products. Dietary intake studies observed large differences in acrylamide between single foodstuffs, within food categories, and within batches of similarly processed products. FAO/WHO emphasized that causes of variation need to be understood to develop effective measures. Particularly at Food Service Establishments acrylamide formation combined with wide consumption of French fries comprises a risk. This chapter illustrates the large variation in acrylamide precursors and acrylamide in fried potato products, and analyzes potential causes of variation in French fries preparation, particularly, food handlers practices as variation source is demonstrated. The variable effect of mitigation measures in FSE has been discussed. Acrylamide risk assessment should consider people impact on variable acrylamide in potato-based products as risk factor.
