Cancer Chemical Found In KFC Fries And In Other Popular Food & Snacks
Cancer Chemical Found In KFC Fries And In Other Popular Food & Snacks

That finger licking good might not be so good for your health, as the recent research reveals that KFC fries, cereals and other roasted foods contain a dangerous chemical called acrylamide.

Acrylamide is a known cancer chemical and as a report from the daily mail suggests, quantities of it have been found in 14 popular food items.

The largest amount was found in crisps, including a number of expensive brands such as Burts Sea Salted crisps.

There were also raised levels in Tesco ready salted crisps, Tayto cheese and onion crisps, Seabrook Sea Salted crisps, Pipers Anglesey sea salt crisps and the Co-op’s Sea Salt and Chardonnay crisps.

Manufacturers suggested the problem was caused by last year’s bad weather which changed sugar levels in potatoes, which in turn created more acrylamide.
Breakfast cereals containing bran, which is cooked at a particularly high temperature, also contained more acrylamide.

Raised levels were found in Tesco bran flakes, Sainsbury’s wholegrain bran flakes, the Co-op’s wheat bran flakes and puffed wheat sold by the Good Grain Company.

Higher than expected levels were also found in Fox’s Ginger biscuits and TUC biscuits.
