Do you or your child have a food allergy, food intolerance or coeliac disease?

Have you had a reaction to food or drink or have narrowly avoided having a reaction in the last 5 years?

If so, please fill in this survey!

The Food Standards Agency (the food regulator for England, Northern Ireland and Wales) want to understand the experiences of people who have had reactions to food or drinks or have narrowly avoided having a reaction. By telling FSA about your experience they can better understand what is happening and why it’s happening.

The FSA is responsible for allergen labelling and providing guidance to consumers with food hypersensitivity. It conducts research like this to inform it’s work in this area.

To take part in the study, please use the following links:

Adults with food hypersensitivities

Thank you in advance for your participation. If you know others who would be able to take part please forward this invite on!

This research is being conducted by Rebecca Knibb at Aston University. It is in collaboration with Manchester University and Allergy Action and is funded by the FSA. If you would like to verify the legitimacy of this research, please contact Dr Rebecca Knibb on
