EFSA THRALL – Detection and quantification of allergens in foods and minimum eliciting doses in food allergic individuals – ThRAll

it will address two main objectives:
1) Develop reference (harmonised) methodologies for the detection and quantification of allergens in foods that will be led by Dr. Linda Monaci. This objective aims at developing a harmonised quantitative MS-based prototype reference method for the detection of multiple food allergens (based on six priority allergens, namely cow?s milk, hen?s egg, soybean, peanut, hazelnut and almond) in standardised incurred food matrices. The matrices will include reference and/or quality control materials already available and produce additional complementary materials in a food pilot plant thus mimicking, as far as possible ?real world? manufactured foods.
2) Generate good quality data on Minimum Eliciting Doses (MED) and Minimum Observed Eliciting Doses (MOED) led by Prof. Clare. Mills. The objective will seek to collate and curate existing data from several sources to provide a publicly accessible curated, data-analysis data set.
