Abstract: The report in April 2002 of high levels of the chemical compound acrylamide in starch-rich, processed food has caused widespread public attention due to its classification as probably carcinogenic to humans. Since this issue concerning the formation of acrylamide during food processing was totally new, a significant amount of knowledge had to be acquired. The central question was, and is, to what extent the acrylamide contents in food affect human health.
