Acrylamide (or acrylic amide) is a chemical compound with the chemical formula C3H5NO. Its IUPAC name is prop-2-enamide. It is a white odourless crystalline solid, soluble in water, ethanol, ether, and chloroform. Acrylamide is incompatible[vague] with acids, bases, oxidizing agents, iron, and iron salts. It decomposes non-thermally to form ammonia, and thermal decomposition produces carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and oxides of nitrogen.
The final part of the second pilot episode of jasevlog - while on holiday I discuss the FSAs warning about acrylamide and go on to talk about why industries like the coffee industry may not want acrylamide to be a public concern.

Homepage: http://www.CleanTV.com Just when you thought it was safe to grab some munchies in the cupboard, a new study warns of cancer in cans and bags—in cans of Pringles and in bags of a myriad of other potato chips. This disturbing truth about an all-time favorite snack may be forcing food manufacturers to change their processing methods. But can the changes really make a difference? Researchers find that potato chips, among other processed foods, are loaded with the cancer causing chemical, acrylamide (uh-kril-uh-mahyd). The substance forms when carbohydrate-rich foods are cooked at very high temperatures. Some of the worst offenders—Pringles and other potato chips and French fries. Federal regulations limit acrylamide in drinking water to just over one-tenth micrograms per 8-ou...

Acrylamide is a neuro-toxic chemical found used in many industries worldwide but is also found in foods. It’s found in paper and pulp, construction, foundry, oil drilling, textiles, cosmetics, food processing, plastics, mining, and agricultural industries. It comes from cooking starch based foods over 120 degree celsius or 250 degrees freheit. This means fried food and broiled foods are the biggest offenders of acrylamide. Boiled and baked foods do create a tiny amount as well but the higher the temperature the more acrylamide is created. The effects of acrylamide on human health are not good. Acrylamide is a carcinogen something t...

HC - Dietary Acrylamide and cancer risk 26-09-2012
Big corporations want to leave a dangerous substance, acrylamide, in everyday foods such as bread, breakfast cereals, coffee, crisps and even baby food. Changing Markets commissioned this animation to promote the SumOfUs petition for tighter restrictions on Acrylamide. Sign it here: sumofus.org/acrylamide
Browned toast and potatoes are 'potential cancer risk', say food scientists "Blast News Channel" Bread, chips and potatoes should be cooked to a golden yellow colour, rather than brown, to reduce our intake of a chemical which could cause cancer, government food scientists are warning. Acrylamide is produced when starchy foods are roasted, fried or grilled for too long at high temperatures. The Food Standards Agency (FSA) recommends carefully following cooking instructions and avoiding browning. However, a Cancer Research spokeswoman said the link was not proven in humans. The FSA also says potatoes should not be kept in the fridge. This is because sugar levels in the potatoes rise at low temperatures, potentially increasing the amount of acrylamide produced during cooking. Q&A: Acrylamide...
