The Crustacean group includes crabs, lobsters, prawns and shrimps which are quite popular inclusions in many diets. Tropomyosin is a protein found in all common species of crustaceans and is responsible for triggering an allergic reaction to a group of people within the community.

The Crustacean allergy is included in the big 8 allergies, affecting older children and adults. It is usually a lifelong allergy with symptoms including skin irritations through to life threatening anaphylaxis.

People who are allergic to crustaceans must follow a very strict exclusion diet, and pay particular attention to food labels. It is also important to note that Tropomyosin protein is not denatured during cooking and therefore retains it's allergenic potential in cooked products.

To ensure the reliability of allergen statements, food manufacturers and laboratories must use reliable and accurate methods to detect crustacean residue in their products.
