Acrylamide and Other Hazardous Compounds in Heat-Treates Food Edited by K.
SCIENTISTS from the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) have warned that the amount of the potentially harmful contaminant acrylamide appearing in biscuits is increasing despite industry efforts to reduce its presence.
In the past few years there has been a significant amount of interest in the levels of acrylamide in fried, baked and roasted products because of the potential carcinogenic risks associated with this compound.
Established in 1978 to import acrylamide grout, as well as represent the 3M grout line, Avanti's product line has grown from acrylamide gel and urethane foam to include acrylic grouts, hydrophobic and hydrophilic urethane foams and gels, as well as microfine cements.
But scientists have found a surefire way of making them safer by soaking them for two hours to cut down on killer acrylamide by 48 per cent.
Acrylamide may promote ovarian or uterine cancer, says a study that tracked some 62,000 Dutch women for 11 years.
