Some things on there I wouldn't have asked about. Fructose? Cinnamon? Has legislation changed when my back was turned (seriously! I have been out of the business for a few weeks!) Or is this from somewhere were fructose allergies are common?

It's a good template that could be pretty much perfect with some critical analysis from people who know what they are talking about, but please don't ask me I just found it and posted it. :dunno:

My job is to light the blue touch-paper and then stand well back. I'm also the only one qualified to go back and relight when the flame dies. It's very dangerous, but I always wear my fluorescent jacket. :rolleyes:

I was just trying to clarify Simon. Seriously several things on this list could not be allergens but might be things which are prohibited by law or undesirable due to political / public opinion (e.g. Tartrazine). Whatever people think, you are not going to die from eating something containing Tartrazine unless you eat tonnes. There is some research suggesting links with behavioural problems but it's not all that conclusive. Likewise, I would chose not to eat GMO but it's not killed anyone yet either but a peanut to a sensitive individual could be death. I always wondered whether allergenic individuals would play Russian roulette with Revels?

Seriously, I made the point because there is a lot of scaremongering about certain ingredients when actually another on your list; celery is an incredibly common allergy in mainland Europe (like peanut allergy in the UK). I'm just worried if people use this list they'll be searching for irradiated ingredients and forgetting about the pallets of celery next door! It's like having 30 CCPs rather than 5. 5 is easier to get your head around!

Very :lol:

When I say I’m not qualified to comment on the accuracy or completeness of the list I am being honest. Hopefully one or two members who are up to speed on allergens can refine it to make it so.

Simon

@ Dear Simon,

Good comment IMO.

We should probably hv the excellent "document exchange" more visible or more explained on main menu (different colour?). I also have a feeling many people may not get the meaning of exchange and be too hurried (lazy?) to investigate. "Useful Downloadable Documents" perhaps ? :smile:

Rgds / Charles.C

added - perhaps a recommendation to investigate is already included in the signing-up process, I can't remember and am too lazy to search around :thumbdown:

Kind Regards,

Now I´m confused. Maize is an allergen? Or only when it´s in the form of starch? So would polenta or grits be allergens?
Are allergens population specific? I´m just wondering because I´m under the impression that gluten allergies are rather rare in my country, but that might be because our main starch comes from corn tortillas. So maybe treating corn with calcium carbonate (nixtamalization) makes it non allergenic? And I´ve never heard of anyone being allergic to celery or carrots.

Years ago when I worked for Kraft, it was considered that Celery was an allergen that was prevalent in East European people and thus those of East European descent. I too, have not heard of carrot as an allergen and neither Carrot or Celery is considered an allergen by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.

I really do find that surprising, from the UK Food Standards agency:

Celery is one of the most common foods to cause oral allergy syndrome in adults in countries such as Switzerland, France and Germany.

That is right. Maize allergy is a so-called IgE-mediated food allergy. IgE (Immunoglobulin E) is the allergy antibody. Allergy to maize is caused by proteins in the kernels. Only one of these proteins has firmly been established as an allergen. This protein is called the lipid transfer protein (LTP). LTP has first been identified as an important allergen in fruits, but it is also present in nuts, various vegetables and in cereals. LTP is an extremely stable protein. It is resistant to food processing, including heating, but also to gastro-intestinal digestion. These properties make LTP a strong food allergen that can cause severe reactions.

Tony :smile:

I heard from one of the auditors few days back that lupin has been added as allergen in EU regulation. Anyone can shed light on this?

From FSA:
The draft Food Labelling (Declaration of Allergens) (England) Regulations will implement Commission Directive 2006/142/EC, of 22 December 2006, amending Annex IIIa of Directive 2000/13/EC, by adding lupin and molluscs to the list of allergens in Schedule AA1.

Tony
