How acrylamide is formed

Acrylamide forms when starchy foods are baked or fried at high temperatures with little moisture, in a process called the Maillard reaction.

How Acrylaway works

Novozymes Acrylaway® converts asparagine into another common amino acid, aspartic acid. This means the asparagine can’t be converted into acrylamide. The result is products with much lower levels of acrylamide.
