Allergens

On 13 December 2014, new legislation (the EU Food Information for Consumers Regulation No. 1169/2011) came into force which requires food businesses to provide allergy information on food sold unpackaged.

THE ALLERGENS INCLUDED IN THE LIST ARE AS FOLLOWS:

  • Gluten Gluten: Foods to avoid include: breakfast cereals containing wheat, wheat products in general, wheaten cornflour, wheat bran, corn or rice cereals containing malt extract from barley, couscous, semolina, barley, porridge, rye, oats, icing sugar mixtures and various baking powders.
  • Eggs Eggs: Check ingredients for sauces like mayonnaise (especially in ready-made sandwiches), as well as cakes and pastries. Being mindful of breads and pies that might have been glazed with egg is also advisable.
  • Milk Milk: Avoiding all dairy products like; cheese, butter, yoghurt and cream is a must, but you’ll also need to check processed foods like; cuppa soups, cooking sauces, cakes, biscuits and more.
  • Fish Fish: Not just all varieties of fish but also beware of products containing fish like; sauces (Worcestershire sauce is a popular example), salad dressings, stocks and gravy.
  • Crustaceans Crustaceans: This means shellfish like; crabs, prawns, lobsters, langoustine, scampi and shrimp. Check ingredients of ready-made sauces (especially Thai style sauces, foods or salads).
  • Molluscs Molluscs: This not only includes; mussels, snails, oysters, squid and whelk but also things like oyster sauce and various other processed foods.
  • Peanuts Peanuts: Typically referred to as legumes or groundnuts. Check popular food items like; spreads, curries, sauces (especially satay sauce) and desserts. It’s also advisable to check labels for things like groundnut oil.
  • Tree Nuts Tree nuts: Almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts, pecan nuts, Brazil nuts, pistachio, macadamia and cashew. Many popular foods contain tree nuts so check the ingredients of all types of bread (including crackers), cakes, marzipan, ready-made sauces and Asian food products (such as curries), frozen foods (like ice-cream) and nut oils.
  • Sesame Seeds Sesame seeds: Which also includes sesame oil. Popular foods containing sesame seeds are hummus (made with tahini, a sesame seed paste) and breadsticks (coated in sesame seeds). All processed and ready-made foods should be checked for sesame seeds, especially foods from the middle east.
  • Soya Soya: Prevalent in dairy alternatives (like Soya yoghurts, milk and butter). Sufferers should avoid; Tofu (and all types of bean curd), edamame beans, miso paste, textured soya protein (like Quorn and similar type vegetarian products), desserts and sauces.
  • Celery Celery: Not just celery stalks but also the leaves, seeds and celeriac. Check the ingredients of things like; celery salt, salads, soups and gravies, stocks and stock cubes.
  • Mustard Mustard: You’ll find this in; curries, meat rubs, marinades, chutneys, salad dressings and sauces, sandwiches (as well as some bread) and soups.
  • Lupin Lupin: Lupin flowers are used to make Lupin Flour, which is popular around Europe. Keep an eye out for it in anything made using flour (like; breads, pastries and cakes for example).
  • Sulphites Sulphites/sulphur dioxide: Sulphites (also referred to as sulphur dioxide) will be rife in preservatives and dried fruits. You should also be careful of; soft drinks (especially dilatable cordials), dried/cured meats, wine, vinegar and beer. Asthmatics have an increased chance of developing an intolerance.

ABOUT FOOD ALLERGIES…

Whilst around 1 in 5 people have some level of food sensitivity in the UK: for 2% of adults, their food allergy is potentially life threatening. Checking ingredients is mandatory for people on restrictive diets, already cautious of processed foods. Although sufferers aren’t deterred from eating out, a survey we conducted showed that 55% check online menus before going out.

Considering that 30% of those surveyed suffer with coeliac disease (diagnosable by blood tests), 36% with lactose intolerance (trickier to diagnose), 14% with egg allergies and a further 12% allergic to peanuts: knowing what goes into your food is vital.

Subsequently, in 2014 a legislation was introduced requiring restaurants to provide allergy information in the form of an FIR food intolerance report, which reports on the 14 EU listed allergens, see that list here.

Although Pizza Express were voted best at handling dietary restrictions in our survey, this guide shows, at-a-glance, allergen-related information covering 24 brand restaurants, 4 independent gems worthy of honourable mention and over 2,800 individual restaurants across the UK: helping you make informed decisions about where and what to eat.

Information contained can only be used as a guide, a sufferer must inform the restaurant of their allergy at the time of eating and assess their own level of risk before eating dishes.
