One in four food samples contain undeclared allergens

New research shows that more than 25% of food samples tested by Suffolk Trading Standards were found to have hidden allergies from 2016 to 2019, with no indication that an allergen was present.

Out of 187 food samples taken, 47 contained traces of allergenic substances that could prove harmful or even fatal to food allergy sufferers – such as coeliacs, people with nut allergies and those with a dairy intolerance.

Of the undeclared allergens found, traces of peanuts, gluten, milk, mustard, eggs and sulphites were all discovered in Suffolk eateries.

Allergy Therapeutics plc (LON:AGY) is a market-leading, pioneering immunology business with specialist experience in the research and development of allergy treatments.
