FOODS 18/08/20 Proteomics-Based Methodologies for the Detection and Quantification of Seafood Allergens

It comprises several distinct groups of edible aquatic animals, including fish and shellfish, such as crustacean and mollusks. Recently, the EFSA recognized the high risk of food allergy over the world and established the necessity of developing new methodologies for its control. Consequently, accurate, sensitive, and fast detection methods for seafood allergy control and detection in food products are highly recommended. In this work, we present a comprehensive review of the applications of the proteomics methodologies for the detection and quantification of seafood allergens. For this purpose, two consecutive proteomics strategies (discovery and targeted proteomics) that are applied to the study and control of seafood allergies are reviewed in detail. ►▼ Show Figures Graphical abstract.

NATURE 02/12/20 How blockchain and genetic engineering could make food safer for people with allergies

Clearly, labelling food products with the allergens they contain is important, and that information needs to be accurate, easy to understand and used appropriately. People with a severe food allergy, and their families and friends, can then make informed choices to safeguard their health. But how informative are precautionary labels that say ‘may contain nut traces’ or ‘made in a premises where nuts are used’? A 2015 survey found that 36% of consumers thought that a ‘may contain’ label meant the product would actually contain the allergen. In September last year, the UK government introduced new labelling regulations for pre-packaged food in response to the death of teenager Natasha Ednan-Laperouse (see go.nature.com/2e91xs9).

Introduction The role of dietary factors in the development of asthma and atopy is still controversial.

CLINICAL & EXPERIMENTAL ALLERGY 20/12/06 Inverse association of farm milk consumption with asthma and allergy in rural and suburban populations across Europe

It has been postulated that the decrease in vegetable consumption and a shift from animal to vegetable fats has contributed to the increase in asthma and allergic diseases over the last decades [1, 2]. Several studies reported positive associations between elevated margarine consumption and childhood atopy risk [3, 4], while studies in rural environments reported an inverse association between consumption of farm‐produced dairy products such as yogurt and farm milk and the prevalence of atopy [5-8], allergic rhinitis [5, 8, 9], asthma [5], and atopic dermatitis [8, 9].

However, in a Finnish study among farm and non‐farm children, no effect of dairy product consumption and atopy was observed, but regular intake of fresh vegetables, predominantly when grown in the own garden, significantly reduced the risk of atopic sensitization [10].

FOOD QUALITY - DEC 2014 - Confusion Surrounding Allergen Labeling. According to recent data, up to 15 million Americans suffer from food allergies—­affecting 1 in every 13 children under the age of 18 and bringing the economic cost of children’s food allergies alone to an estimated $25 billion per year.

Food allergies among children increased approximately 50 percent between 1997 and 2011 while hospital admissions for severe reactions in children in Europe have risen seven-fold over the past decade. In a world survey conducted by the World Allergy Organization, the British Society for Allergy and Immunology reported that 25 percent of the adult and 25 percent of the childhood population in the U.K. suffer from one or more allergic diseases; however, the overall prevalence of allergic disease in the U.K.’s general population has remained stable over the past 10 years.

FOOD QUALITY - DEC 2014 - Crustacean Residues in Foodstuffs.

It is among the major foods consumed globally, mainly due to a large movement towards healthier eating. International trade in seafood and new seafood products is growing rapidly and there are more and more reports of adverse reactions in the population consuming seafood. The generic term “crustaceans” includes all arthropodic aquatic animals, with six major subgroups and 44,000 species. Hidden crustacean proteins in food represent a critical problem for people with crustacean allergies.

Sufferers have to avoid the consumption of food containing crustaceans very strictly. FOOD SAFETY MAGAZINE – DEC 2014 - Allergen Management: Challenges and Trends.

Food allergy. A food allergy is an adverse immune response to a food protein.[1][2] They are distinct from other adverse responses to food, such as food intolerance, pharmacological reactions, and toxin-mediated reactions.[3] The protein in the food is the most common allergic component. These kinds of allergies occur when the body's immune system mistakenly identifies a protein as harmful. Some proteins or fragments of proteins are resistant to digestion and those that are not broken down in the digestive process are tagged by the Immunoglobulin E (IgE). These tags fool the immune system into thinking that the protein is an invader. The immune system, thinking the organism (the individual) is under attack, sends white blood cells to attack, and that triggers an allergic reaction. The scope of the problem, particularly for young people, is a significant public health issue.
