IFST - New Food Allergy fact sheet

June 26, 2019

Institute of Food Science & Technology (IFST) released a new Food Science Fact Sheet on Food Allergy. It has been designed to provide the public with clear, concise and scientifically reliable information on this topic.

Food allergy never seems to be out of spotlight as we continue to learn about allergy symptoms and severity. Those at great risk are teenagers and young adults, many of whom have never experienced a major reaction before. 

As food allergy presents significant challenges for both consumers and those managing food businesses, IFST's Food Science Fact Sheet answers the following questions:

  • What is a food allergy?
  • What is a food intolerance?
  • What are the major food allergens?
  • How food allergens should be labelled?
