Take part in the Global Allergen Threshold Survey

Global Survey – Consumer perspective of allergen thresholds
Participate in a global research project on food allergens – an online survey which will take about 10 minutes to complete.
The survey is online for two weeks until 20 May 2013.
A global summary including New Zealand’s survey results will be available in July.

Global Survey – Consumer perspective of allergen thresholds
Allergy New Zealand is a member of the Patient Organisation Committee of the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI). EAACI is an association of clinicians, researchers and allied health professionals, dedicated to improving the health of people affected by allergic diseases.

Patient organisations are seeking comments from the public (globally) on the emerging topic of food allergen threshold levels (i.e. the lowest amount of an allergen that causes an allergic reaction). We would also like to know more about community knowledge and opinion on this topic and appreciate your taking the time to tell us a bit more about your current approach to managing food allergies when it comes to selecting foods, your knowledge of thresholds, and related matters. 

This survey is designed for people with food allergies, the family members with whom they reside, and caregivers who purchase food for people with food allergies (such as babysitters and extended family members). This survey is not designed for institutional caregivers, such as day care operators or school personnel. 

While the information that you provide will remain anonymous, we may include aggregate data and quotes in presentations, reports, and other publications. Information from this survey will be useful when we discuss food labelling and allergen threshold levels with others such as the food industry, food scientists, clinicians and researchers, government regulators, and patient groups.

The survey should take about 7 to 10 minutes to complete and there will be an opportunity to offer comments at the end. Thank for you for your time and participation. Please click on the link below to take the survey
