All About Allergens
Food allergies can be life threatening. For people who have a food allergy the only way to manage the allergy is to avoid the food allergen. For this reason there are laws in place like the mandatory labelling requirements under Standard 1.2.3 of the Food Standards Code.
When consumers disclose their allergy, the food service industry has a responsibility to help the customer with food menu choices by providing information on allergen content that may be present directly and/or indirectly in food menu items.
To assist the food service industry in meeting their obligations, a free online training course has been launched by the National Allergy Strategy, a partnership between Australia’s peak allergy bodies, the Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy (ASCIA) and Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia (A&AA).
The All about Allergens online training available via a National Allergy Strategy website - provides access to training that is fast, easy and free. The comprehensive program provides need to know information relevant for those in the food service industry and is presented using videos and interactive activities.
