There is no cure for food allergy...

Therefore, it is very important that food businesses provide clear and accurate information about allergenic ingredients in their products. EU FIC introduced new rules for food businesses relating to the labelling and provision of allergen information.

Allergic reactions…

An allergic reaction can be produced by a tiny amount of a food ingredient that a person is sensitive to, Symptoms of an allergic reaction can range from mild symptoms such as itching around the mouth and rashes; and can progress to more severe symptoms such as vomiting, diarrhoea, wheezing and on occasion anaphylaxis (shock).

Types of food allergies.

Food allergies are divided into 3 types, depending on symptoms and when they occur

  • IgE-mediated food allergy – the most common type, triggered by the immune system producing an antibody called immunoglobulin E (IgE). Symptoms occur a few seconds or minutes after eating. There's a greater risk of anaphylaxis with this type of allergy.
  • Non-IgE-mediated food allergy – these allergic reactions aren't caused by immunoglobulin E, but by other cells in the immune system. This type of allergy is often difficult to diagnose as symptoms take much longer to develop (up to several hours).
  • Mixed IgE and non-IgE - mediated food allergies – some people may experience symptoms from both types.
