The new allergen information rules will mean that:
- you can now ask for information about 14 allergens, if used as an ingredient in the food you are buying, when you eat out.
- you will see allergenic ingredients emphasised (for example, using bold, italics or colours) on pre-packed foods. This means all allergen information will be found on the ingredients list only.
