Sesame
Rare but Severe Allergic Reactions
Sesame has gained importance due to the increasing demand for organic and whole food products. Even though allergies are rare, allergic reactions to sesame are severe. Even by roasting or heating the allergens of sesame are not destroyed. Therefore sesame as an allergenic food ingredient is subject to labelling requirements for the protection of sensitive people.

Analysis
Determination of sesame is possible with DNA or specific proteins. For the analysis of sesame in food GALAB offers a specific and sensitive real time PCR method. Even in processed foods the detection of sesame is feasible with PCR. With this method you can rule out cross contamination during the production process for your safety and product liability.
