Food Allergies - Assessment Review Question



A protein’s stability to digestive enzymes and processing, is an important component in assessing its allergenicity.

Looks Good! Correct: Explanation: Many allergens display stability to digestive enzymes and processing. However, common food proteins with no history of allergenicity degrade when exposed to digestive enzymes and processing conditions. Thus simulated digestive condition, as well as processing, provides a methods to assess the potential for proteins introduced into food plants to be allergenic.
