Acrylamide is a compound that is produced when many foods, particularly starchy foods, are cooked – or more importantly ‘browned’. Acrylamide has been found both in processed foods and also in foods cooked at home. The acrylamide forms when a food is roasted, toasted, grilled, or fried. Foods implicated would be toasted bread; potatoes, whether fried (chips or crisps) or roasted; vegetables (roasted or fried as veggie crisps); or other starchy foods like biscuits or crackers. All these foods develop acrylamide during the cooking process due to the ‘Maillard reaction’ which is the reason these foods go brown.
