About this webinar

Food allergen monitoring systems require analytical tools that effectively determine the levels of allergenic food protein(s). Food processing changes may impact food proteins, either by altering their intrinsic allergenicity or the effectiveness of extraction methods for determination of allergens in foods. Thus matrix can impact detection by the analyst or the biological responsiveness by an allergic individual.

In this webinar, using peanut as a model, attendees will learn how the use of detergents, including acid-labile detergents, can optimise extraction of incurred peanut in different matrices.
