Allergens

Allergens in food can cause serious, life-threatening symptoms, even in small quantities in sensitive individuals. Thus, safe detection of even the smallest traces of an allergen in a final product is important for quality assurance in the food industry.There are 14 food ingredients responsible for 90% of all food allergies. Following EU Directive 2007/68/EC or 2000/13/EC, they must be reported on the package label when present in a product. In some countries limits exist, such as in Switzerland, where it is 1,000 ppm.
For the detection of major food allergens, BIOTECON Diagnostics offers real-time PCR kits. When used in combination with the Allergen RM 800 reference material, quantification is also possible.

Approximately 9% of food allergies are triggered by soy. It is referred to as a “hidden allergen”, as soy is found in many foods, yet remains undeclared. Soy protein can be in lecithin (E 322), emulsifiers, binders, vegetable protein, vegetable fats or stabilizers.
