Application No. 12/698275 - CONTROL OF COLD-INDUCED SWEETENING AND REDUCTION OF ACRYLAMIDE LEVELS IN POTATO OR SWEET POTATO

Abstract

The present invention is directed to methods and compositions to eliminate cold storage-induced sweetening of potato or sweet potato. The invention is accomplished in part by silencing the vacuolar acid invertase gene using RNAi technology. The resulting potatoes withstand cold storage without significant hexogenesis, producing potatoes or sweet potatoes that have reduced Maillard reactions when fried in hot oil. The fried products accumulate significantly lower levels of acrylamide compared to controls.
