Formation of carcinogenic 4(5)-methylimidazole in Maillard reaction systems.

Abstract

4(5)-Methylimidazole has received the attention of federal and state regulatory agencies because of its carcinogenicity and common presence in foods and beverages. In the present study, the formation of 4(5)-methylimidazole in Maillard reaction model systems consisting of D-glucose/NH(3), L-rhamnose/NH(3), methylglyoxal/NH(3), and methylglyoxal/formaldehyde… (More)
