I stumbled across this post, from a fellow blogger and found it really interesting. It's great to be kept up to date on the latest research in our industry. Here is what it said:
"On Wednesday I went, for the first time, to the Food Standards Agency’s annual presentation, this year focused on their work in the field of food allergy, and on the departure of the splendid Dr Andrew Wadge who has headed up the scientific arm of the FSA since 2000. (He pointed out that, whatever the failings of the department – and what department does not have its failings – its workings were now totally open to public scrutiny, a very great change from the closed door mentality which had been bedeviled food policy in the last century.)
Setting aside their much argued-over work on allergen labelling, the agency has also been active in a number of research projects which were outlined by the keynote speaker, Professor Ian Kimber, Professor of Toxicology at the Faculty of Life Sciences at the University of Manchester. Pleasingly, the department actually gets £21 million each year to spend on research, although. obviously, not all of that by a long chalk goes on food allergy."
