Allergen-Shield Hazelnut

Catalog number: A1648/A1696

Allergen-Shield Hazelnut is an ELISA test that determines hazelnut residues in food products labeled as hazelnut-free.

General Information:

Hazelnut (Corylus avellana) belongs to the birch plants. Many hazelnut proteins, such as Cor a 9 and Cor a 11 are allergenic. Most of them are very heat resistant making them stable to different production processes. Consumption of hazelnut might be harmful for people who are allergic to it. The allergen can be present as an ingredient or as a contamination in raw and cooked products. Consumption of hazelnut-containing food from allergic people might cause a broad range of symptoms, such as hives, mild oral allergy or/and anaphylactic shock. According to the regulation (EU) No. 1169/2011 Annex II, hazelnut is included in the list of allergens established by the European Food Safety Authority, and its presence must be indicated on the label. Similar regulations exist e.g. in the USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand
