For people with food allergies, vague warnings on food products – such as “may contain nuts” – can be confusing; is the product safe to consume or not? In a new study, researchers claim to have identified the levels at which five common food allergens – peanut, hazelnut, celery, fish and shrimp – cause a reaction in only 10% of people who are allergic to them.

The research team – led by Prof. Clare Mills of the Institute of Inflammation and Repair at the University of Manchester in the UK – says they hope the findings will lead to improved allergy warnings on food products.
