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...

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,...

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...

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...

Predicting the allergenicity of novel proteins is challenging due to the absence of validated predictive methods and a well-defined reference set of proteins. The prevalence of sensitization could be a parameter to select reference proteins to characterize allergenic proteins. This study investigated whether the prevalence of sensitization of...

Scope: No accepted and validated methods are currently available which can accurately predict protein allergenicity. In this study, the role of digestion and transport on protein allergenicity is investigated. Methods and results: Peanut allergens (Ara h 1, 2, 3, and 6) and a milk allergen (β-lactoglobulin) are transported across pig intestinal...

Background: Food proteins differ in their allergenic potential. Currently, there is no predictive and validated bio-assay to evaluate the allergenicity of novel food proteins. The objective of this study was to investigate the potential of a human peripheral blood mononuclear cell (PBMC) gene expression assay to identify biomarkers to predict...

Background: Understanding consumers’ interpretation of allergy information is crucial for effective food safety policies. We evaluated consumer understanding of allergy information on foods in controlled, experimental studies. Method: Using 18 packaged foods, we evaluated consumer understanding of information about allergens in two experiments:...

Every food producer knows the importance of allergen risk assessment and management in view of well-known allergens, such as those from peanut, egg and milk. However, all proteins intrinsically come with a risk of being allergenic. Therefore, safety assessment for protein-based food products needs to address potential allergenicity risks. This...

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...

This work reports on the effect of heat treatment on the protein conformational stability of intact and post-translationally cleaved peanut allergen Ara h 6 in relation to IgE-binding. Intact and post-translationally cleaved Ara h 6 are structurally similar and their strong resistance to denaturant-induced unfolding is comparable. Only upon...

Background: Novel foods may provide new protein sources for a growing world population but entail risks of unexpected food-allergic reactions. No guidance on allergenicity assessment of novel foods exists, while for genetically modified (GM) crops it includes comparison of sequence identity with known allergens, digestibility tests and IgE serum...

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...

The growing world population and increased pressure on agricultural resources are driving a shortage of dietary protein sources. As a result, industry is developing more sustainable novel food protein sources such as insects, algae and duckweed and using new processing techniques. Consumer exposure to these novel or processed proteins, could...
