The Anaphylaxis Campaign is aware that the current conflict in Ukraine is affecting supplies of sunflower oil. To avoid food supply issues, manufacturers are using refined rapeseed oil before being able to change the information on the food ingredient labels.
Although allergic reactions to rapeseed oil are almost unheard of, if you would like more information, please read our Vegetable oils factsheet or call our helpline on 01252 542029. Accurate food labelling is of the utmost importance to food allergic consumers, and we will continue to monitor the situation extremely closely to keep our supporters informed of any changes or updates.
