Food Allergens Knowledge Hub


The identification, control and communication regarding food allergens has always been a critical issue throughout the food supply chain. Since the subject of allergens, and the implications for food businesses, has been brought into even sharper focus, IFST has published this knowledge hub to provide easy access to free and reliable resources, for all those needing clear and trusted, scientifically evidence-based information.
