Question

I have a food allergy. Why do products with the Allergy Seal of Quality sometimes have traces of allergens?

Answer

It is important that products with the Allergy Seal of Quality never have traces of the allergen that is being advertised. For example, traces of wheat or spelt are not allowed in gluten-free foods. However, certified products may contain traces of other allergenic ingredients because a person with a lactose intolerance, for example, does not automatically have avoid all other allergenic ingredients that require declaration. In this way, a wide range of controlled and certified foods can be offered to the various people affected.


Question

I have a food intolerance. Why can’t all foods suitable for me be certified?

Answer

The Food Law prohibits claims that promise a benefit of a product that all comparable foods also have. This is called protection against deception. This is why, for example, certain foods that naturally do not contain lactose may not be advertised or certified as "lactose-free". Furthermore, certification with the Allergy Seal of Quality is voluntary. We start a certification process only if we receive an application for it.
