Maillard Reaction is My Friend

The Maillard Reaction is my friend, it’s your friend, it’s every food lovers friend.  What is the Maillard Reaction. Its the scientific name for Golden Brown and Delicious.

The Maillard reaction is not a single reaction, but a complex series of reactions between amino acids and reducing sugars, usually at increased temperatures. Like caramelization, it is a form of non-enzymatic browning.


So be sure to thank Louis Camille Maillard for finding out why things brown.
