Webinar Food Allergen Quantitative Risk Assessment 4-6 May 2022 Munich, Germany

Globally there is an increased interest amongst government agencies, industry and academic experts in the integration of risk assessment as a part of allergen management, including as input into decisions on precautionary allergen labelling (PAL). Despite the increased maturity of allergen risk assessment approaches, which includes basic criteria on how calculations can be performed, there is a lack of consensus on practical deployment. This is a significant gap, as only with such consensus across all stakeholders and especially food operators can there be more accurate and meaningful PAL.

Through a series of stakeholder workshops, this project defined consensus on the methodologies needed for quantitative risk assessment by food business operators, and their implementation:

Mini-events to discuss specific sections of the guidance document:
- Core Concepts: Food intake, data conversion, carry-over calculation, and prevalence of food allergy, 29 April 2021
- Incidents - characteristics of contamination, 7 May 2021
- Core Concepts: Sampling and analysis, 18 May 2021
- Incidents - communication, 1st June 2021
- Communication across the supply chain, 29 July 2021

The EG published a peer-reviewed publication (here) and released a practical guidance (Black and White Report) (here).

During the final webinar, we will present the chapters summaries of the Practical Guidance (Black & White Report) including Communication Across Supply Chains, Management of Operations, Management of Incidents and Overarching Core Concepts.

Abstract
Understanding the impact of the microbiota on the gut brain axis is key to exploring prophylactic or therapeutic approaches. The complexity and interindividual diversity of the gut microbiota, the impact of environment, diet, drugs and stresses, make it difficult to manage or manipulate the microbiota. Learnings from animal models, especially humanised rodent models, from 3D brain and gut organoids or advanced co-culture systems, can help understand  the complex interactions between the host and his/her microbiota.

New sophisticated diagnostic tools applied in humans allow to not only know "who" is there, but also "what are they doing there". When applied on a large number of people, healthy and diseased, accumulated data will feed artificial intelligence algorithms, permitting to identify high-risk patients at an early stage, determine imbalances, whether microbiological, immunological, endocrinological or metabolic in nature, and  suggest possible prophylactic interventions to mitigate risks.

On May 10th, ILSI Europe organised a free webinar on nutritional strategies to support healthy ageing. In the last century, we have added 30+ years to our life expectancies, but healthspan has not kept pace. We cannot reverse ageing, but we can extend our healthspan by changing our lifestyle. Please join us as we explore nutrition to improve health and age!

Dr Everson Nunes presented the latest insights on the current scientific evidence from randomized clinical trials regarding dietary protein supplementation to increase lean mass and strength. Prof. Philip Calder described findings from human trials that have investigated the effect of bioactive omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA) on muscle protein turnover and on muscle mass and function. Possible mechanisms of action will be described. Lastly, Prof. Sue Shapses described how protein has multiple effects on maintaining a healthy body with aging, including evidence for bone health.

Speakers

  • Dr Everson Nunes - Exercise Metabolism Research Group, Department of Kinesiology, McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario, CA
  • Prof. Philip Calder - Professor of Nutritional Immunology, University of Southampton, UK
  • Prof. Sue Shapses - Professor, Department of Nutritional Sciences, Rutgers University, US

Chair

  • Prof. Claire Gaudichon - Université Paris-Saclay, AgroParisTech, INRAE,UMR PNCA, Paris, France

This webinar was supported by the Health Benefits Assessment of Foods Task Force

Since 2005, IAFP's European symposium has been shaping the future of food safety by providing a forum for the exchange of ideas with colleagues from across Europe working in industry, government, and academia. The Symposium is an excellent forum to gain knowledge about the latest-QRAB developments and techniques in food science and safety. The symposium will be held on  4-6 May 2022 in Munich, Germany at the Holiday Inn Munich - City Centre. For more details please visit the IAFP website.

This year ILSI Europe will participate to the Symposium through one scientific session supported by its Food Allergy Task Force. We will also have a booth in the exhibition area: Come visit us and do not hesitate to contact us to organise a one-to-one meeting, we would be very happy to meet and discuss with you.

Application of Food Allergen Risk Assessment and Management: Current Perspective and Issues
Friday, 06 May 2022, 08:30 AM (CEST) BACKGROUND
Food allergies were recognised as a significant, global public health issue over 25 years ago with the first FAO/WHO Consultation on allergens, which identified 8 priority allergenic foods or food groups. While this recognition implied a need to manage those allergens, the available tools severely limited what could be achieved at the time. In the intervening period, several methodologies have emerged and matured, together with a better understanding of the concept of tolerable risk. These developments and activities, together with the increasing global impact of food allergies on public health led to the recently concluded FAO/WHO Expert Consultation on Risk Assessment of Allergens as well as accompanying Codex activities. The landscape of food allergen management is thus at an inflection point. The previously established practice is that allergen cross-contact is managed in a binary fashion, i.e. either allergen is potentially present or not. This binary approach, which lacked industry alignment on how it was implemented, has led to inaccurate information being passed along supply chains. It has therefore led to a disconnect between the reality of risk and precautionary allergen labelling (PAL) and contributed to the proliferation of uninformative labelling. Fortunately, the current advent of allergen reference doses and their application in quantitative risk assessment can provide an opportunity to refresh how allergen risks are assessed and managed, but only if new tools are implemented consistently across businesses that produce food. OBJECTIVE
This session will present updates from recent food allergy related activities within Codex committees and FAO/WHO joint expert consultations, explore tools and approaches to harmonize the data gathering process for food allergen risk assessments and their implementation, and investigate the impact on consumers with food allergy when differing risk management strategies for allergen labelling are implemented. SESSION PROGRAMME

• Practical Guidance on the Application of Allergen Quantitative Risk Assessment, Dr Neil Buck, General Mills Inc, CH
