Good day everyone!

Does anybody have any limits or reference on limits for phytohaemagglutinin in beans including risk involved?

 

I am doing my hazard analysis and stumbled through this upon reviewing FDA's Bad Bug Book.

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi Zene, as you can imagine I don't have an answer for you, but you have won the award for the weirdest topic title ever.  :thumbup:

 

I had to google it.

 


Phytohaemagglutinin (PHA, or phytohemagglutinin) is a lectin found in plants, especially legumes. PHA actually consists of two closely related proteins, called leucoagglutinin (PHA-L) and PHA-E. The letters E and L indicate these proteins agglutinate Erythrocytes and Leukocytes.

Hi Zene,

 

Hope you are doing good.. Are you from the beans processing industry. Actually I am looking for the professionals who is working beans canning industry. I have just recently joined in a canned beans company. I have many doubts related to that. If you can share the information, I will be very grateful to you.

 

Thank you,

Salim

Hi zene-c,

 

Re-Limit - apparently none in USA but there is an advisory process for beans as also noted in Badbug and many, many other places -

Hi Simon!

Thanks for the award. ;-) haha, just making sure I do not miss out on any hazard as this may again come out as a finding on my hazard analysis.

 

Hi Salim!

Sorry I am not working in the beans industry, i work in the hotel industry. If I come across additional info will gladly share it with you.

 

Hi Charles!

Thanks as always for the references. I will just be lowering the severity as there is not much literature on the said item, for likelihood, I will just have to add more controls in place.

 

Hi Clem!

It is hard to pronounce and a big pain in the brain. haha.

 

Thanks again everyone!

 

cheers,

zene
