Expertise

At the moment the only cure for food allergy is to avoid the problematic food(s). The law requires food companies to provide safe foods. As a consequence food companies and food authorities need to find out if food products pose a risk for allergic people. As part of an EU research project about food allergy, EuroPrevall, I am responsible for a new website, www.foodallergens.info, which is aimed at the food industry and food authorities. Here they can find guidance about how to handle food allergens in the food production including how they can minimise the risk of unintentional presence of allergens in a product. In addition I have written several lay articles about food allergy. Some of them are translated and published on websites and/or magazines for European patient organisations. I have contributed to information material for health professionals in contact with food allergic people. I take part in developing courses in food safety for students at DTU. Previous I have given advice to the Danish Environmental Protection Agency and the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration about the safety of enzymes, vitamins/minerals, various industrial chemicals (e.g. PCBs, and mineral wool), and pesticides (e.g. triazines).
