FDA issues draft guidance on acrylamide

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently issued a non-binding draft guidance to help growers, manufacturers and food service operators take measures to reduce acrylamide levels in certain foods.

The document covers raw materials, processing practices and ingredients affecting potato-based foods, cereal-based foods and coffee.

The draft guidance is part of a number of activities initiated by the FDA to study acrylamide in food.
