Acrylamide is fast becoming a big concern for the food industry, due to the growing body of evidence of its role as a potential carcinogen. Acryleast™ is a new fully non-GMO solution for acrylamide reduction brought to market from today by Kerry, the world leading Taste & Nutrition company, in partnership with Renaissance BioScience. It is a clean-label, non-GMO yeast, rich in asparaginase enzyme, which has the ability to reduce acrylamide levels by up to 90% across a broad range of food and beverage products, including biscuits, crackers, French fries, potato crisps, coffee and infant food. 

Governments all over the world are starting to pay attention to acrylamide and are implementing new regulations, which include setting benchmark levels as in the EU.

Matthew May, Kerry’s Bakery Lead for Europe and Russia says, “We repeatedly tested Acryleast’s effectiveness in reducing acrylamide levels across a range of biscuit and cracker applications. This involved testing in both our own laboratories and in scaled-up plant trials, where reductions of greater than 90% were achieved. These trials also demonstrated no impact on taste or texture, confirming that Acryleast is a very effective and versatile solution for acrylamide reduction, that requires no or minimal changes to existing manufacturing processes.“

Mike Woulfe, VP Business Development Enzymes, at Kerry comments, “For Kerry, it was essential to launch a solution that was clean label and non-GMO so that both producers and consumers could trust that acrylamide was being reduced consistently, and in the right way.”

Kerry has initially focused Acryleast application analysis in the categories of baked goods, however this is being expanded to snacks, processed potatoes and other categories.
