What does the Food Allergen Awareness course cover?

The online course contains the following 4 topics:

1 – Introduction to allergens

The first topic defines what an allergy is and describes what happens in your body when you are exposed to an allergen. It identifies the types of things people can be allergic to. You will learn about the difference between food allergy, food intolerance and Coeliac’s disease. The topic also covers the prevalence of food allergies.

2 – Consequences of food allergies

The second topic identifies common allergy symptoms. It also describes what you should do in the event of anaphylaxis.

3 – Providing Allergen Information to Consumers

The third topic outlines UK food information regulations and the penalties for failure to comply with these regulations. It identifies how information about pre-packed and non-pre-packed food should be presented to consumers. You will also learn about 14 key allergens that you must inform consumers about.

4 – How to avoid cross-contamination

The final topic describes management strategies to reduce the risk of cross-contamination of allergens. It identifies what staff training must be carried out. The topic also emphasises the importance of good storage, equipment cleaning and personal hygiene.


Once you have completed the four topics, you will be allowed to take the Food Allergen Awareness assessment. The course generates an assessment from question banks so that the questions change each time a candidate takes the assessment. This makes the training suitable for initial and refresher training.

There is no limit on the number of attempts at the assessment. In addition, the training course gives useful feedback so learners can learn from incorrect responses.
