Is it allergen-free? The Role of Testing in Your Food Allergen Management Programme

It may be tempting to believe that choosing a method of allergen analysis is as simple as finding one that detects the allergen of interest and has a reasonably low limit of detection.

While these are important attributes, it is essential that the method selected is suited to purpose. It should not only evaluate the measures to be applied but also verify the effectiveness of the allergen management plan and, of course, monitor the allergen status of all ingredients, materials and products.

At this workshop, we invite you to learn about the allergen risk assessment in the supply and production chain as well as some practical ways to carry out testing as part of your food allergen management programme.

Topics include:

  • Global regulations
  • Product recalls and trends
  • Allergen risk assessment
  • The latest and most effective testing methods
