Abstract

Thresholds for allergenic foods constitute a key element in characterizing the hazard and assessing the risk to allergic consumers from those foods. Threshold determination for key allergenic foods in Europe was identified as a major element and deliverable in the EuroPrevall work program. The value of this work was based on the twin foundations of value to the individual patient and the use of threshold data to improve risk management of allergenic foods. This chapter will discuss the results of EuroPrevall and analyze them from a public health perspective, linking them to preexisting data and discussing proposals for their use in risk assessment. It will also identify remaining data gaps and suggest how they may be addressed.
