New Allergen - added to the Food Standards Code list

On 25 May 2017, the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code (the Code) was amended to add lupin to the list of allergens that must be declared on food labels.

All products, including existing ones out on shelves, will need to comply with the new labelling requirements for declaring lupin by 26 May 2018.
Agrifood Technology has the capability to analyse for the presence of a broad range of lupin species in various food product along with testing of the other nine allergens that are on the Food Standards Code List.
