At present the bewilderment of the consumer regarding the credibility of information sources available on the allergenic nature of certain foods has been increased by the proliferation of web sites offering allergy information, much of which is of poor quality, anecdotal in nature and commonly linked to specific, alternative remedies.
The aim of the InformAll project is to provide credible information sources, including a database, which addressed the concerns and needs of various stakeholders:
- General public
- Food allergic consumers
- Agro-food industry
- Health professionals
