This work aimed at studying the influence of baking temperature and formulation on the formation of undesirable Maillard compounds called neoformed contaminants (NFC) in a model cookie system. Four NFCs were observed as furosine (FUR), carboxymethyllysine (CML), hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) and acrylamide (ACR) for three baking temperatures – 150, 200 and 230°C – and three recipe variables as sugar type, fat saturation level and leavening agent. The results showed significant accumulation of all

The type of sugar used is determinant regarding NFC formation: glucose tends to generate more HMF than sucrose at low baking temperatures and more CML whatever the baking temperature. The substitution of sugar by a sugar alcohol like maltitol, allows strongly limiting HMF production. Surprisingly, no promoting effect of ammonium carbonate on ACR could be evidenced.
