As the EU Commission moves to a decision on the regulation of acrylamide and the Food Standards Agency (FSA) tells consumers to go for ‘more golden’ than ‘brown’, IFST has updated its Information Statement on Acrylamide suggesting that one approach does not meet every product requirement.

Those seeking to mitigate Acrylamide formation in their particular product should utilise the detailed Codes of Practice and guidelines aimed at different industry sectors and particular food types.

These are sensible actions one should undertake now rather than wait for an uncertain regulatory outcome, which might be confounded even further by Brexit.

IFST Information Statements summarise the authoritative and impartial science behind key food science issues. They are peer-reviewed by IFST’s Scientific Committee.
