With the increase of individuals suffering from food allergies all across the world and the need to provide better and safer food, the food industry is moving more and more toward risk assessment approaches and starting to implement threshold levels for allergen content in food products. There is a need to make food allergen labeling more comprehensive and move away from precautionary labeling. This requires reliable and reproducible analytical tools but due to the nature of the analytes and their susceptibility to various processing effects, reliability, and comparability of results can be a challenge. Here is where reference materials come into play. Reference materials are key to assure the quality, reliability, and comparability of analytical results obtained with different analytical methods.
