F Badoud et al, 2020. Fate of acrylamide during coffee roasting an in-vitro digestion assessed with Carbon 14- and Carbon 13- labelled materials, Food Chemistry, published online.
Acrylamide (AA) formation during coffee roasting happens rapidly, reaching a peak value within the first minutes of roasting followed by a fast decrease to reach an asymptote at approximately 200 µg/kg. Today, the mechanisms by which AA is reduced during roasting remain unclear. In this research, the fate of AA during roasting followed by drip brewed-like extraction was studied using 14C-radiolabeled (14C-AA) and 13C-labeled (13C3-AA) materials. Results showed that 28% of the spiked 14C-AA was lost during the roasting process, presumably by degradation to volatile compounds and 25% was non-extractable; therefore, appeared bound to the matrix. About 50% of initial AA went into the water extract, either unchanged or transformed by conjugation/binding. The release of bound acrylamide was further evidenced by increasing levels of 13C3-AA over prolonged roasting times. In addition, the absence of 14C activity in the hexane extracts suggested acrylamide not to bind to any lipophilic material.
Ja tak, jeg vil gerne modtage nyhedsbrev, når der er noget nyt om kaffe og helbred.
