Meet us in Montreal at the 13th International Symposium on the Maillard Reaction.
Proteins contained in living organisms are usually rich in the amino acids arginine and lysine. Under heat and/or by deficiency of water they react with reducing carbohydrates such as glucose or lactose to various Maillard reaction products (MRPs) and Advanced Glycation End-products (AGE).
