According to the scientific opinion of the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), acrylamide exposure might increase the risk of developing cancer, making it a potential carcinogen. According to Commission Regulation (EU) 2017/2158, products that potentially require acrylamide testing include: • Potato crisps • Soft bread • Roasted and instant coffee • Breakfast cereals • Biscuits, wafers, and crackers • Cereal-based foods intended for small children Depending on the product, acrylamide content should not exceed 40-4,000 µg/kg.
