A natural food coating prevents the formation of acrylamide in food

A Spanish team from the Institute of Food Science and Technology and Nutrition (CSIC) has patented a natural food coating that reduces the formation of acrylamide up to 80% in food and the formation of hydroxymethylfurfural up to 98%.
