Allergen Awareness

Anyone working in the food industry, from food preparation, through manufacturing, distribution and retail, needs to take special care to ensure that the food products are safe to eat, especially for consumers with food allergies or intolerances.

 

This course is about food allergies, so pay attention! You wouldn’t give someone out-of-date drugs, would you? Giving a person food containing nuts, who’s allergic to… nuts, is… nuts.

It’s serious because that person could get really sick. For this reason, food production, preparation, handling, selling and transportation is strictly regulated by legislation, and anyone handling, preparing or serving food must have a good understanding of food allergies and food safety.

If that’s you, that means you need to know to handle allergenfree and allergenic food ingredients, to keep your nose out of trouble.
