Bélgica: Belgium excluded from EU food safety regulations regarding fries

Belgium’s national dish, the deep fried potato sticks that much of the English-speaking world gallingly calls "French fries", has been saved.

So, at least, the national government said on Wednesday as the European Union agreed to amend food safety rules aimed at curbing cancer. Belgium’s farm minister claimed the EU will now spare the nation’s "friteries" from having to change traditional preparation methods.

"The Belgian fry is saved! Europe has listened to Belgium," Agriculture Minister Willy Borsus said in a statement retweeted by Prime Minister Charles Michel following an EU decision.

Despite repeated assurances from EU officials that there was no threat to their host country’s gastronomy, local media has been gripped for weeks with the saga of the EU threat to Belgium’s chips, traditionally consumed on the hoof with mayonnaise or, in restaurants, with steamed mussels as "moules frites."

In a statement issued in Brussels, the European Commission said EU governments had agreed its proposals to force cafes and restaurants to apply measures aimed at reducing the presence of carcinogenic acrylamide in food. Frying, baking and roasting produce the substance out of natural acids and sugars.

Some argue that Belgium’s traditional method of frying potatoes twice to get crunchy chips creates more acrylamide.
