The recently adopted regulation: EU COMMISSION REGULATION (EU 2017/2158) (20-Nov-2017), established mitigation measures and benchmark levels for the reduction of acrylamide in food. The regulation requires business operators to adopt mitigation measures necessary to meet the objectives of the Regulation. To confirm compliance with benchmark levels, the effectiveness of mitigation measures by industry will have to be verified through sampling, testing and analysis.
Acrylamide formation in food is a difficult-to-resolve problem recognised by the food industry. Curtis Analytics Ltd aims to help companies and private individuals to reduce the levels of acrylamide in their products and food to ‘as low as reasonably achievable’ (ALARA) and to comply with an evolving regulatory framework.
