Background: Wheat protein hydrolysates have been traditionally used as food additives and are now being used in cooking worldwide. There have been a few studies on the relationship between the molecular mass distribution and the immunoglobulin E (IgE) reactivity of the wheat protein hydrolysates. Method: We analyzed the peptide profile of commercial wheat protein hydrolysate samples from enzymatic or acid hydrolysis of wheat protein using size exclusion chromatography. We further investigated…

Evaluation of Allergenicity of Acid-Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein Using an in vitro Elicitation Test

Even after prolonged hydrolyzation, acid-HGs still retained the ability to activate mast cells in the case of HWP1-sensitized subjects, according to the results of the in vitro elicitation test.

Wheat grain allergies: an update on wheat allergens.

The type of IgE-binding profiles in patients with wheat food allergy as a function of age, symptoms, or genetic variability of wheat cultivars provides interesting and useful data for developing hypoallergenic foods as well as new tools for diagnostic and therapeutic methods.

Proteomic analysis in allergy and intolerance to wheat products

The main aspects of current and prospective applications of mass spectrometry and proteomic technologies to the structural characterization of gluten proteins and derived peptides are critically presented, with a focus on issues related to their detection, identification and quantification, which are relevant to the biochemical, immunological and toxicological aspects of wheat intolerance.

Effect of Some Hydrolytic Parameters in the Action of Subtilisin and Pancreatin on Whey Protein Concentrate

Abstract In this work, the influence of some reactional parameters in the hydrolysis of whey protein concentrate (WPC) was evaluated, in terms of the nutritional quality of peptide profiles of the

Creating hypo-/nonallergenic wheat products using processing methods: Fact or fiction?

It is found that food processing significantly modulates wheat allergenicity and fermentation and enzymatic hydrolysis hold the most potential to create novel hypo-/nonallergenic wheat products; however, preclinical validation and human clinical trials are currently lacking.

Scientific Opinion on the evaluation of allergenic foods and food ingredients for labelling purposes

The NDA Panel decided to update its previous opinions relative to food ingredients or substances with known allergenic potential listed in Annex IIIa of 2003/89/EC, as amended.

Comprehensive Review on Banana Fruit Allergy: Pathogenesis, Diagnosis, Management, and Potential Modification of Allergens through Food Processing

The pulp of the banana fruit is rich in bioactive compounds like dietary fibers, low glycemic carbohydrates, natural sugars, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. These beneficial compounds are



Identification of major wheat allergens by means of the Escherichia coli expression system.

Reactivities of protein fractions with sera of patients with wheat-associated allergies were examined under various conditions, indicating that the kind, the number and the epitope of allergens were variable among patients.

Human IgE binding capacity of tryptic peptides from bovine alpha-lactalbumin.

IgE binding to native alpha-La and large peptides confirmed the importance of conformational epitope(s), however, in some sera reduced and S-alkylated peptide exhibited a similar or higher IgE binding capacity than the native corresponding fragment, suggesting the existence of sequential epitope exposed through protein denaturation.

Analysis of taste-active compounds in an enzymatic hydrolysate of deamidated wheat gluten.

Reconstitution studies based on the results of the chemical analysis and sensory comparison of the model solution and WGH-3 indicated that other components in addition to glutamate and organic acids contribute to its glutamate-like taste.

Antigenic and allergenic determinants of ovalbumin. I. Peptide mapping, cleavage at the methionyl peptide bonds and enzymic hydrolysis of native and carboxymethyl OA.

The reactivity of OA is relatively stable and could easily be retained making it possible to identify the allergenic determinants of enzymic hydrolysates used for elucidating the antigenic structure of the molecule.

Novel Method for Producing Hypoallergenic Wheat Flour by Enzymatic Fragmentation of the Constituent Allergens and Its Application to Food Processing

A novel method is proposed to produce hypoallergenic wheat flour suitable for patients allergic to wheat, which suggested negative allergenicity in most cases.

Isolation and Characterization of a Novel Polysaccharide As a Possible Allergen Occurring in Wheat Flour

A new polysaccharide with a molecular weight of 5.0×104 was found to be a possible wheat allergen, as it bound specifically to IgE antibodies in the sera of patients allergic to the water-soluble fraction of flour.

Inhibition of basophil histamine release by a haptenic peptide mixture prepared by chymotryptic hydrolysis of wheat flour.

It was concluded that the peptide mixture was composed of monovalent haptens and can regulate the allergenic reaction in an epitope-specific manner.

[Effect of hypoallergenic wheat (HAW-A1) on atopic dermatitis (AD) with wheat allergy, and its antigenic analysis using sera from patients with AD].

Fractionated wheat antigenic proteins to salt-soluble and salt-insoluble fractions and assayed the IgE antibody titers against each fraction using AD patients' sera indicated that the salt- soluble fraction has potential of major allergenicity.
