Experts from FAO and WHO convened to establish allergen threshold levels, a key aspect of assessing allergen-related risks.
Their mission: Determine safe reference doses (RfD) to minimize allergic reactions without health risks.
RfD Recommendations (mg total protein from allergenic source):
No fatal reactions observed below RfD.
Non-severe anaphylaxis often resolves without treatment.
Controversy: Soya's removal as a global priority allergen due to low prevalence and potency.
Protecting the allergic population, one threshold at a time. #FoodAllergies #AllergenThresholds #FAO #WHO
