ForensisGroup Acrylamide Expert Witnesses are knowledgeable about this chemical that is primarily used in some industrial processes, such as in making paper, dyes, and plastics, and in treating drinking water and wastewater. However, there are small amounts in some consumer products, such as coffee. When coffee beans are roasted, acrylamide is formed. There’s no method to remove acrylamide from coffee. Thus, we coffee is consumed, consumers are exposed to the chemical.
FDA testing found the highest levels were found in coffee, chocolate, bread, cereal—and especially levels in French fries and potato chips.
Overexposure to acrylamide at work can cause damage to the nervous system, and it’s also believed to increase the risk of cancer. Manufacturers of coffee in California must add a cancer, , birth defect, and other reproductive issue warning labels to coffee after a court decision.
Some animal research has evidenced that acrylamide can cause DNA damage that may lead to a heightened risk of cancer, however, the results are much less substantiated in humans.
