Maillard Reaction - The Process

The Process

  1. The carbonyl group of the sugar reacts with the amino group of the amino acid, producing N-substituted glycosylamine and water
  2. The unstable glycosylamine undergoes Amadori rearrangement, forming ketosamines
  3. There are several ways for the ketosamines to react further:
    • Produce 2 water and reductones
    • Diacetyl, aspirin, pyruvaldehyde and other short-chain hydrolytic fission products can be formed
    • Produce brown nitrogenous polymers and melanoidins

    The toddler’s wish to please ... is a powerful aid in helping the child to develop a social awareness and, eventually, a moral conscience. The child’s love for the parent is so strong that it causes him to change his behavior: to refrain from hitting and biting, to share toys with a peer, to become toilet trained. This wish for approval is the parent’s most reliable ally in the process of socializing the child.
