While there are EU laws for priority allergenic ingredients information on food product packaging, there is no legislation about Precautionary Allergen Labelling (PAL) for unintended allergen presence (UAP). As a result, PAL is used in different ways by different manufacturers and retailers, which hampers consumers’ interpretation of the...

Lack of guidance regarding selection of food intake values for allergen risk assessment can lead to different outcomes for similar levels of allergens in food products. Several food consumption survey databases (United States, North-West Europe, and Netherlands) were analyzed to identify optimal food intake percentiles using a sensitivity...

Background: Sesame is a significant food allergen causing severe and even fatal reactions. Given its increasing prevalence in western diet, sesame is listed as an allergenic food requiring labeling in the United States and EU. However, data on the population reaction doses to sesame are limited. Methods: All sesame oral food challenges (OFCs),...

The need for region-specific food intake values to accurately estimate food allergen risk is underscored by the recent Ad Hoc Joint Food and Agriculture Organization/World Health Organization (FAO/WHO) Expert Consultation on Risk Assessment of Food Allergens (1). A recent study published by Sun et al. in China CDC Weekly 2022, titled A Chinese...

Background: Cow's milk (CM) is an increasingly common cause of severe allergic reactions, but there is uncertainty with respect to severity of reactions at low-level CM exposure, as well as the reproducibility of reaction thresholds. Objective: We undertook an individual participant data (IPD) meta-analysis of studies reporting double-blind,...

Food allergy has been recognized already in early history as a condition triggered in some individuals upon consumptions of specific foods. However, its recognition as an essential element to be addressed in food safety management is of much more recent date. As a consequence, risk assessment and risk management practices for food allergy are...

Access to Eliciting Doses (ED) for allergens enables advanced food allergen risk assessment. Previously, the full ED range for 14 allergenic foods, including milk, and recommendations for their use were provided (Houben et al., 2020). Additional food challenge studies with cow's milk-allergic patients added 247 data points to the original...

Quantitative risk assessment (QRA) for allergens exists in many different forms with different requirements placed on the risk assessor depending on the question that needs to be answered. An electronic workshop held in October 2020 and comprising representatives from a wide range of food allergy and allergen stakeholder groups identified that a...

Regional and national legislation mandates the disclosure of “priority” allergens when present as an ingredient in foods, but this does not extend to the unintended presence of allergens due to shared production facilities. This has resulted in a proliferation of precautionary allergen (“may contain”) labels (PAL) that are frequently ignored by...

Allergen cross-contact and unintended allergen presence (UAP) are a significant challenge for food operators. The aim of this document is to translate the findings of the Expert Group on ‘Food Allergen Quantitative Risk Assessment (QRA)’ into a Guidance document which provides tools and approaches to help harmonize the data gathering process for...

Allergenic food particles (typically ~0.5–5 mm) may unintentionally end up in food products during production and can pose a risk for the allergic consumer. A single particle can provoke allergic symptoms in an allergic consumer when the dose of allergenic protein exceeds minimal eliciting doses. However, there is a lack of fundamental knowledge...

Food allergen threshold dose distributions are used in food allergen risk assessment to determine the level of risk within a food-allergic population to a defined exposure amount of allergenic food protein and to help inform allergen risk management decisions. There has been a long-standing interest in determining threshold dose distributions...

Background. Soy is globally recognized as a commonly allergenic food. The VITAL (Voluntary Incidental Trace Allergen Labeling) Scientific Expert Panel (VSEP) of the Allergen Bureau of Australia & New Zealand used data on minimal reactive doses in low-dose clinical challenges of soy-allergic individuals to elaborate and propose the first...

Background Eliciting doses (EDs) (eg, ED01 or ED05 values, which are the amounts of allergen expected to cause objective symptoms in 1% and 5% of the population with an allergy, respectively) are increasingly being used to inform allergen labeling and clinical management. These values are generated from food challenge, but the frequency of...

Food allergy and allergen management are important global public health issues. In 2011, the first iteration of our allergen threshold database (ATDB) was established based on individual NOAELs and LOAELs from oral food challenge in roughly 1750 allergic individuals. Population minimal eliciting dose (EDp) distributions based on this dataset...

Previously, we published selected Eliciting Dose (ED) values (i.e. ED01 and ED05 values) for 14 allergenic foods, predicted to elicit objective allergic symptoms in 1% and 5%, respectively, of the allergic population (Remington et al., 2020). These ED01 and ED05 values were specifically presented and discussed in the context of establishing...
