Roles Classification
Chemical Role(s): Maillard reaction product
Any thermal degradation product obtained as a result of a chemical reaction between an amino acid and a reducing sugar (Maillard reaction, a non-enzymatic browning procedure that usually imparts flavour to starch-based food products).
Biological Role(s): hepatotoxic agent
A role played by a chemical compound exihibiting itself through the ability to induce damage to the liver in animals.
carcinogenic agent
A role played by a chemical compound which is known to induce a process of carcinogenesis by corrupting normal cellular pathways, leading to the acquistion of tumoral capabilities.
