Abstract
The emerging challenges associated with human exposure to food allergens have fueled an urgent need for development of novel detection and sensing systems. Food industries, regulatory agencies, and allergy suffers require the ability to quickly test and continuously monitor in-situ for specific allergens and/or food contaminants in food and food processes.Film that adhere specifically to nut allergens will be developed. Opto-electronics will be developed to automatically measure the amount of nut allergen on the film. These films will be the basis for sensors that can be used for nut allergen detection in the food processing supply chain.
