Acrylamide generation in pre-treated potato chips

Pedreschi, F.; Kaack, K; Granby K.


Acrylamide formation in potato slices fried at two different temperatures (170 and 190°C) was investigated under different pre-processing conditions. Potato slices (Satuma variety, diameter: 37 mm, width: 2.2 mm) were either fried at 170°C per 5 min or 190°C per 3.5 min to reach a final moisture content of 1.8 g water/100g (wet basis). Prior to frying, potato slices were treated in one of the following ways: (i) Raw slices without any pre-treatment were considered as the control; (ii) Blanching: which was accomplished in 2 temperature-time combinations: 60°C for 30 min and 90°C for 5 min; (iii) Slices blanched treated such as in (ii) were then dried at 60°C until a final moisture content of 60 g water/100 g (wet basis); (iv) Slices blanched such as in (ii) were then impregnated in a 3 g/100 g of NaCI solution for 5 min at 25°C. Acrylamide content in potato chips was determined after frying at 170 or 190°C. Frying at 190°C increased by almost 130 percent the acrylamide content of all the pre-treated samples (average value) fried at 170°C. Soaking of blanched potato slices in the 3g/100g of NaCl solution per 5 min at 25°C, reduces acrylamide formation in potato chips by 11 percent after frying at 170°C. However when the slices are blanched directly in the 3 g/100g of NaCl solution at 60°C for 30 min, their acrylamide formation increased surprisingly by -90 percent when frying at 170°C.
