Allergen Analysis with Alliant Food Safety Labs
Everything You Need To Know About Allergen Analysis in New England
Food allergy, an immune response to proteins present in food that the body mistakenly believes are harmful, is an important health problem of increasing concern in developed countries. Allergens are the largest single cause of global product recalls, with the major risk for food manufacturers being the potential for cross contamination with food allergens during production processes.
