Food allergy and intolerance research --

The programme is currently funding research under a number of key themes of work, outlined below:

  • Development of management thresholds for allergenic foods
  • Route and timing of exposure to food allergens in early life
  • Immunological aspects of food allergy
  • Prevalence and characteristics of food allergy and intolerance
  • Food allergen labelling and consumer choice research
  • Evaluation of FSA allergy guidance

Major aims include facilitating the development of allergen management thresholds for use by industry and regulators and identifying risk factors associated with the development of food allergy so that appropriate information can be provided for consumers. In addition the programme also focuses on understanding consumer attitudes to food allergy and intolerance and its labelling.
