Legislation requires labelling of foods containing allergic ingredients, amongst them celery, mustard and sesame. Here we present robust quantitative and sensitive methods for real-time PCR detection of celery, mustard (Sinapis alba and Brassica sp.) and sesame in food. The development of the DNA-based assays was part of an effort to generate alternative detection methods for allergens for which effective protein-based assays are lacking. The celery and sesame methods were specific for the… CONTINUE READING
