Acrylamide is a naturally occurring chemical compound found in many plant-based, high-carbohydrate foods after they are heated. Acrylamide was first discovered to be present in food by the Swedish National Food Authority in 2002. However, we now know that acrylamide in foods is not new. It has been part of the human diet for thousands of years, ever since humans have cooked their food.
