This special issue focuses on the effect of various food processing methods on potential human allergenicity. Find out how different allergenic foods respond to physical, chemical, or biochemical processing methods. In some cases allergenicity is unaltered, in others it is decreased when epitopes are destroyed, and in certain cases food processing increases allergenicity when new epitopes appear or when existing epitopes are unmasked.
