Have you noticed a change in the way food allergens are listed on packaged foods lately? For children, residents and families who live with food allergies, there is a welcome change improving the way food allergens are listed on products, called PEAL. 

Food Standards Australia and New Zealand (FSANZ) have updated the laws on allergen labelling for foods that can cause severe allergic reactions. Food allergen declarations now must be clear and consistent to help everyone make safe food choices
