The model of lysine–reducing sugars had been studied by Maillard (Compt Rend Acad Sci 154:66–68, 1912 [1]) and many other researchers (Hodge in Adv Carbohydr Chem 10:169–205, 1955 [2]; Adrian and Frangne in Ann Nutr Alimentation 27(3):111–123, 1973 [3]; Tagami et al. in J Mass Spectrom 35(2):131–138, 2000 [4]).
