ABSTRACT
The article focuses on immunoanalytical detection of allergenic proteins in food. The proportion of the population suffering from food allergies caused by particular proteins in foods and foodstuffs is continually increasing. Immunoanalytical methods are mostly chosen because of the high specificity and sensitivity of the antibodies. They are used in food industry laboratories and by official food control bodies to detect and quantify allergens present in food. Alternative methods are molecular biological techniques such as polymerase chain reaction, the use of which is still limited.
