New allergen information rules will mean that:

  • you can ask if any of the 14 allergens are used as ingredients in the food you are buying, when you eat out.
  • you will see allergenic ingredients emphasised (using bold, italics or colours) on pre-packed foods, so all allergen information will be on the ingredients list only.

If you suffer from a food allergy, Allergy UK has help and advice about living with allergies. Visit the Allergy UK website >>

You can subscribe to get allergy alerts by email on the Food Standards Agency website >>
