Test food products for presence of allergens
A food allergy is an exaggerated immune system response triggered by specific food items such as eggs, peanuts, milk etc, which can occur within seconds or minutes of consuming the item.
The symptoms of food allergies are distinctive and severe in nature, such as swelling of face and tongue, breathlessness, itching of mouth, throat, eyes and skin, sore throat, or in extreme cases, even death. Food labelling is important to ensure that consumers make informed buying decisions.
TÜV SÜD is able to test all groups of allergens present in food products including:
- Milk Protein
- Soya Beans
- Tree nuts
