The prevalence of food allergy is increasing, age at onset is decreasing and the condition can have severe effects, including breathing difficulties, anaphylaxis and in rare instances, death. Legislation has been put in place to ensure that allergy sufferers are informed of the intentional inclusion of key food allergens. In the EC, Directives 2003/89 & 2005/26 originally applied and other allergens were added in 2006. In the USA, the “Food Allergen Labelling and Consumer Protection Act” (FALCPA) came into force early in 2006; both mandate the clear labelling of particular food allergens.
In the EC the intentional presence of the following foods must be listed in the ingredients: celery/celeriac; cereals (wheat, rye, barley, oats, spelt, kamut); crustacea, eggs; fish; lupin, molluscs, mustard; sesame; soya & tree nuts (almond, hazelnut, walnut, cashew, pecan, Brazil, pistachio, macadamia). In the USA the list is similar but includes only those foods in italics above.
Casein is the most common protein in milk and many other dairy products. It is also used as a “fining” agent to clarify wine. Allergies to milk proteins primarily affect infants and young children, although they may either resolve or manifest themselves later in life.
Symptoms range from minor skin irritation and facial swelling to much more severe digestive and respiratory problems or even fatal anaphylaxis; these effects coupled with the age of most sufferers make detection of casein/milk allergens in food important.
Imutest Milk-Check (Casein) ELISA utilises polyclonal antibodies to detect caseins present in soluble extracts of foods using a direct "sandwich" ELISA technique. It is designed to detect caseins at very low levels in raw materials, environmental swab samples and fresh, processed and heated food products.
The assay range is nominally between 0.8-16.0 mg/kg [PPM] of skim milk powder (SMP) if the stated extraction ratio is used. The range can be extended upwards by amending this ratio if required. The Limit Of Detection (LOD) of the assay is <0.2MG/KG (PPM) SMP.
