About this title

Synopsis:

This book comprehensively addresses the sources of allergenic contaminants in foods, their fate during processing, and the specific measures that need to be taken to minimize their occurrence in foods. The book provides up-to-date information on the nine major allergens (as well as other emerging allergens) and practical guidelines on how these allergens can be identified and controlled during production and processing. Starting with an introduction to food allergens, the book follows with sections on food allergen management during production and processing, guidelines for the processing of specific allergen-free foods, techniques for hypo-allergenization and allergen detection, and allergen-free certification.

From the Back Cover:

REVIEWS THE LATEST FINDINGS, CONCERNS, AND STRATEGIES IN FOOD ALLERGEN MANAGEMENT

With its "farm-to-fork" approach, this book presents the full spectrum of allergen management issues and strategies needed to eliminate allergens from food products. Beginning with the sources of allergenic contaminants, the book then explores the fate of allergens during processing as well as measures to minimize their occurrence, enabling food processors to develop food products that are safe for consumers with food allergies.

Allergen Management in the Food Industry is divided into four sections:

  • Food Allergy and the Consumer begins with an overview of food allergy and food intolerance; it then sets forth the major issues in food allergen management and the criteria for determining priority allergens
  • General Principles for Allergen Management and Control addresses allergen management in agricultural practices, food processing, and food service
  • Processing Foods Free from Specific Allergens reviews the processing of foods to eliminate the presence of priority allergens, including dairy, eggs, fish, crustaceans, peanuts, tree nuts, gluten, and soy
  • Risk Assessment and Risk Management addresses allergen risk assessment, risk management, precautionary labeling, and allergen-free certification

Each chapter has been written by one or more leading experts in food allergen management. The authors include active researchers in Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, and North America, who provide a global perspective on this hot-button issue.

Food allergic reactions, which affect four to eight percent of children and two to four percent of adults, have become a growing challenge to the food industry. Now food scientists, processors, regulators, inspectors, and policy makers have a single reference that helps them protect the health of consumers with food allergies.
