Restaurant customers have to be informed about food allergens
Holidays are coming – a great time to go to a restaurant. For customers with a food allergy the choice from the menu will be easier this year. Under the new EU food labelling law information about allergens must be provided to customers of restaurant and takeaways too.
Food allergen tests are essential for good risk management
Restaurant staff has to be trained to supply correct information about food allergens to customers. On the other hand the restaurant needs to be able to rely on data suppliers give them. The use of the appropriate allergen tests will help the supplier to maintain a sound allergen risk management.
Several food allergen testkit formats are available:
|1||Lateral Flow Tests||The best choice for “allergen hygiene monitoring”.|
|2||ELISA||Ideal for testing series of samples – options for automation.|
|3||real-time PCR||Identification of allergens on DNA level.|
