Food and Beverage Testing Allergens

Food Allergens

Allergens can unintentionally find their way into food from cross-contamination during production and, when not declared on the label or menu, can lead to adverse immunological response often with tragic consequences. Application of risk-based approaches to managing allergens in foods requires access to good quality data from clinical studies to determine “safe” levels of allergens in foods as well as analytical tools that are able to quantify allergenic food protein.

Waters LC-MS technologies enable scientists to develop workflows to identify and determine levels of incurred allergens in raw ingredients and processed foodstuffs, ensuring accurate product labeling and consumer safety.
