Abstract

Acrylamide is a problematic byproduct that comes from reducing sugars, like glucose and fructose, reacting with amino acids, like asparagine, which results in a compound that is considered a neurotoxin and probable carcinogen. In particular, it's formed when potato slices undergo frying to form chips, and pulsed electric fields are a proposed solution to held reduce the amount of reactants available to form less acrylamide.
