Dairy allergen tests applied to coconut milk drinks – Food Standards Code Standard 1.2.3
Where dairy content is not declared on the label in an allergy statement or in the ingredients list the following tests will be applied to coconut milk drinks:
|Test code||Tests||Compliance requirement (Limit of reporting)|
|Dairy allergen (ALLEGEND)||Beta-lactoglobulin||< 0.1 ppm|
|Casein (expressed as skim milk powder)||< 1.0 ppm|
|Total milk (expressed as a non-fat dried milk)||< 2.5 ppm|
If the test detects the presence of dairy content it will also be classified as a LABEL fail against Food Standards Code Standard 1.2.3.
The importer may elect to apply a compliant label or export or destroy the food.
