    Assessing the Impact of Processing on Food Allergenicity

    In the past decade, there has been an increase in the prevalence of food allergy, asthma and severe reaction to food. Reasons for this increase are greatly unknown, and there are no therapy and treatments available despite the potential for a lethal outcome. Many studies are being taken to find out what modern processing techniques have to do with food allergies, and if they are the cause of increased food allergies. Food processing has been known to influence allergenicity, and studies have expounded on this fact. Here are some of the impacts of processing on food allergenicity.Effect of Processing on ProteinsProcessing can cause... Read More
