Food Safety Magazine: New research supports informative food labels for improved nut allergy care
UC researcher's findings on 'eliciting doses' for peanut allergies cited
Research from Lynne Haber, PhD, senior toxicologist and adjunct associate professor in the UC College of Medicine, was cited in an article in Food Safety Magazine. Haber used mathematical models to find an 'eliciting dose' — or the amount of peanut protein that will cause or elicit an allergic reaction in peanut sensitive patients.
Food allergies affect a significant number of children and adults globally and the incidence of peanut allergies in particular appears to be growing. Haber's research was published earlier this year in scholarly journal Food and Chemical Toxicology. Her study was supported by the Institute for the Advancement of Food and Nutrition Sciences (IAFNS), a research nonprofit uniquely positioned to mobilize industry, government, and academia to drive, fund, and lead actionable research. IAFNS elevates food safety and nutrition sciences to advance public health.
