The kinetics of acrylamide (AA) was analyzed by heating a simple model system consisting of asparagine and glucose, fructose, or sucrose (0.01 M, pH 6) at temperatures between 140 and 200 degrees C. The AA concentration appeared to be the net result of simultaneous formation and elimination. A general kinetic model describing the AA yield was identified, and kinetic parameters were obtained by nonlinear regression on the nonisothermally derived data. On the basis of kinetic parameters, the AA formation appeared to proceed faster and to be more temperature sensitive in the asparagine-glucose than in the asparagine-fructose model system. The AA elimination kinetics, on the other hand, was similar. Significantly less AA was formed in the asparagine-sucrose model system as compared to the model systems with glucose or fructose.
