Declaration of allergens

This project aims to investigate the types of allergen declarations currently used nationally and internationally and which of these are interpreted correctly and easily by food allergic and intolerant consumers.

Food-Drug Interaction Database 
While interactions between medicinal substances are well researched, such research is lacking for interactions between medicines and food. There are potentially dangerous combinations of food and medicines which could lead to overdosing (in cases of enzyme-inhibiting foods) or underdosing (in cases of enzyme-producing foods). In this project, a database of the results from basic research will be created.
