In order to help allergic patients manage often severe symptoms, food manufacturers are required to list allergens on their products and researchers are working to develop effective immunotherapies. Due to limitations of the existing tools, precise quantification and standardisation of milk allergens in food, therapeutic and diagnostic products can be difficult.
Concern about the safety of food products has increased dramatically with intentionally and non-intentionally added substances (NIAS) used in packaging being of particular interest. APGC and high resolution MS together with a workflow driven process was used to identify unknown compounds in packaging.READ MORE
In April 2017, a campus-community event (N=42 participants) was held to promote sustainable food systems by educating participants about concepts ranging from food production to nutrition and food waste management. This poster discusses the resulting increased awareness and knowledge of a our local food system among participants, which can be fostered through educational events that combine opportunities for research, teaching, and practice.READ MORE
