Food allergy is an immune system response to a protein in food that the body mistakenly believes is harmful. A food allergy reaction can potentially be life threatening.
Food labelling rules in Australia state that the ten most common declared allergens (peanut, tree nuts, milk, egg, fish, shellfish, wheat, sesame, soy and lupins) must be declared on food packaging.
The law in Australia requires food businesses to provide accurate information when a customer asks about potential allergens in the food they are served or sold.
