Top 14 allergens

Top 14 allergens

In the UK, there are 14 food allergens that are recognised as the most common ingredients that can cause allergic reactions. These allergens represent the most common sources of severe allergic reactions in individuals, and food labels in the European Union (EU) must clearly indicate their presence to help consumers with allergies make informed choices and avoid allergens that could cause adverse reactions.
