This Technical Specification specifies a method for the determination of acrylamide in cereal-based products, potato-based products and coffee by gas-chromatography mass spectrometry (GC-MS).
The method has been single-laboratory validated via the analysis of spiked samples (French fries (uncooked), bread, water biscuit, infant cereal, biscuit, green coffee, roast coffee and instant coffee), ranging from 30 μg/kg to 1 500 μg/kg acrylamide.
The results from the single laboratory validation were obtained by a laboratory with significant experience in acrylamide analysis. In addition, this method has also been studied by inter laboratory trial via the analysis of samples containing incurred acrylamide, ranging from approximately 200 μg/kg to 2 000 μg/kg. Critical points of the method are identified in 7.5 and Clause 8.

This European Standard specifies a method for the determination of acrylamide in bakery ware such as bread, toasted bread, crisp bread, butter cookies, and biscuits, as well as potato products such as potato chips, potato crisps, and potato pan cake and roasted coffee, by liquid chromatography in combination with electrospray ionization and tandem mass spectrometry (LC-ESI-MS/MS). This method has been validated in an interlaboratory study via the analysis of both naturally contaminated and spiked samples, ranging from 14,3 µg/kg to 9 083 µg/kg. It was developed at the Swedish National Food Administration and validated in a study organized by the Directorate General Joint Research Centre (DG JRC), Swedish National Food Administration and the Nordic Committee on Food Analysis (NMKL), see [1] and [2].
The limit of quantification (LOQ) depends on the type of instrument used and on the actual performance of the instrument. The majority of the laboratories participating in the validation study were able to determine acrylamide in a butter cookie sample at a level of 14,3 µg/kg. Thus, the validation by interlaboratory study showed that LOQ can be expected to be in the range between below 15 µg/kg and 30 µg/kg.

This International Standard provides a chart which lists the main five different categories of defects which are considered to be potentially present in green coffee as marketed throughout the world, whatever its species, variety, and after-harvest processing (wet or dry).
This chart shows the influence of such defects on the loss of mass and on the sensorial concern by using the coefficients (0), (0,5) and (1). Each defect is given one of these values depending on how seriously it affects the above-mentioned characteristics. Thus, the final assessment can become a useful tool for the trading parties involved, and also gives a good indication to the purchaser of the quality of the green coffee concerned.
The definitions can be used to specify terms of bilateral purchasing contracts or to classify coffee lots for their presentation to green coffee buyers or at a stock exchange.

This International Standard specifies a method for the roasting of green coffee, grinding the roasted coffee, and the preparation — from the ground coffee — of a beverage to be used in sensory analysis.
The sensory analysis carried out following this preparation may be used to determine the acceptance or rejection of a shipment of coffee, subject to agreement between the parties concerned. Generally, the sample will require a light roast for assessment of defects, and a medium roast for assessment of flavour and colour.
A beverage prepared in accordance with this International Standard can be used not only for purposes of quality control, but also for purposes of comparative assessment of different samples, in which case an identical procedure can be followed for each of the samples.
