The aim of the work was to compare the impact of different salts such as monovalent and divalent chlorides, hydrogencarbonates, phosphates and lactate on acrylamide formation in cereal model system during baking at 190°C for 9 min. Ammonium hydrogencarbonate promoted acrylamide production significantly. On the other hand, other inorganic salts lowered acrylamide content. Calcium chloride was the most effective with near to 90% acrylamide elimination ability. Sodium acid pyrophosphate, sodium as well as potassium dihydrogen phosphate were also very effective and brought about 75% acrylamide content decrease, followed by calcium lactate, sodium chloride and potassium chloride causing 40–45% of acrylamide elimination and finally sodium and potassium hydrogen carbonates that achieved 30% reduction of acrylamide.Keywords:acrylamide; cereals; raising agents
