Could someone tell me what is the difference between clause 5.3.1 Raw material assessment and clause 5.3.2 List of allergenic materials? Since from what I understand in both an analysis is done to determine the presence of allergens in raw materials? any example you can give me??

 

Thanks

5.3.1 You evaluate your raw materials for the presence of allergenic proteins.   

5.3.2 Is nothing more than creating a list of items that contain said allergenic proteins.  This list should include raw materials, WIPs, processing aids, and any finished product that contains allergens.   

 

 

From 5.3.1 you create a list of everything that is contains an allergen to satisfy 5.3.2.

It does take a couple of reads through to clarify...

 

5.3.1 looks purely at raw materials, and essentially look at the risk. This asks two questions essentially:

- is there an allergen known to be in the ingredient? (example: egg in pasta)

- is there a risk of allergen contamination in the ingredient? (example buying egg-free pasta from a dedicated egg free supplier vs from a supplier that produces both egg and egg-free pasta)

 

5.3.2 is definitely the list of ingredients, but add in all other potential sources of allergens (cross docked materials, product development samples, finished products etc.
