HOW CAN YOU PROTECT YOUR CONSUMERS AND YOUR BRAND FROM THE RISKS OF FOOD ALLERGENS?

Food allergens are proteins in certain foods that trigger an abnormal immune response in sensitive individuals. Common food allergens include peanuts, tree nuts, milk, eggs, soy, wheat, sesame, fish, and shellfish. Based on available data, Filipinos are most susceptible to fish and shellfish allergies. Although the amount of allergen needed to trigger a reaction varies from person to person, once their threshold is reached, they will experience symptoms that range from simple itchy skin to life-threatening anaphylaxis. Unfortunately, there is no known cure for food allergies. Avoidance of allergenic foods is the only foolproof way to prevent allergic reactions. Food manufacturers have the responsibility to assess and declare the presence of food allergens in their products. Failure to properly label potentially allergenic products can pose significant threats to consumers.

How safe is your drinking water?

The increasing prevalence of waterborne illnesses has become a pressing concern, especially in regions where access to clean water and proper sanitation is limited. To ensure water safety for human consumption, testing for water contamination is of utmost importance. One crucial parameter in water quality testing is the presence of pathogens, particularly Escherichia coli (E. coli) and coliforms. These microorganisms are indicative of soil and/or fecal contamination, posing serious health risks to the public if the contaminated water is ingested.

These encounters are mostly due to poor storage conditions which are highly affected by changes in environment temperature.
