Acrylamides are primarily found in starchy foods like potatoes that have been cooked at high temperatures.
This can occur when simple sugars (like glucose or fructose) and a free amino acid called Asparagine are present in a food.
When this food is subjected to high temperatures - a "browning reaction" is created as well as acrylamides.
The importance of eating healthy and minimizing the formation of acrylamides will be essential to staying healthy!!
As these toxins are a potent Neurotoxin (like MSG) and increase your risk of
getting Alzheimer's Disease.
Also, you'll be less able to detoxify
your body with lower levels of Glutathione which gets depleted by this Neurotoxin.
Acrylamides are more likely to be found in foods that contain starch and have been baked, fried, grilled, or roasted.
Potatoes that have been fried in vegetable oils will contain a very high amount!
Please be aware that a new study by researchers in Spain has indicated that dietary fats may make a significant contribution to the formation of acrylamide.
The researchers found that high fat levels in roasted almonds may account for as much as half of the acrylamide found in this food and most likely accounts for high levels found in other high fat foods.
The Importance of Eating Healthy
The importance of eating healthy cannot be overstated!
You will want to eliminate as much of this food toxin as possible if you want to feel your best.
Just lowering your consumption of foods cooked at high temperatures.
And getting rid of habits such as tobacco smoking (which also provides an ample amount) will be a great start in reducing this Neurotoxin.
Also, eat foods that are naturally low in acrylamides.
