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%. Acrylamide and hydroxymethylfurfural are potentially carcinogenic compounds that naturally occur in certain foods during cooking, frying, baking or roasting, at temperatures of 120oC or higher. This is the first product that avoids these two compounds occurring, and may provide a solution to a problem that has concerned food safety agencies in the last few years.
