Food allergies

Consumer advice

A food allergy is an abnormal response to a food triggered by your body's immune system. Allergic reactions to food can sometimes cause serious illness and death. New legislation about how food is labelled came into force in December 2014 Food Information Regulations 2014 (opens new window) and October 2021 Natasha's Law (opens new window) affecting food businesses in the UK.

The legislation requires that foods you buy from shops has the allergens emphasised in the ingredients list, e.g. in bold, underlined or highlighted text. You will no longer see separate information listing the allergens in a food.
