Potato cultivars for French fries processing usually contain high amounts of starch while reducing sugars in the raw tuber should be low with respect to low acrylamide concentrations in the end product [1]. Good predictions of dry matter and starch content were established by measuring the raw ground tuber using NIRS [2]. NIRS-based predictions of acrylamide precursors (reducing sugars and asparagine) in the raw material would be an advantage in quality control of industrial French fries… Expand
