The Food and Drug Administration on Sept. 7
for the first time recognized a qualified health
claim to prevent a food allergy.
The claim states, "For most infants with
severe eczema and/or egg allergy who are
already eating solid foods, introducing foods
containing ground peanuts between 4 and 10
months of age and continuing consumption
may reduce the risk of developing peanut allergy by 5 years of age."
Food manufacturers may use the claim
immediately. The new claim does not cover
whole peanuts, which are a choking hazard
for young children.
The claim came in response to a petition
filed by Assured Bites, Inc., Roslyn Heights,
NY. The company offers Hello, Peanut! kits for
infants.
The claim is based on one study published
in The New England Journal of Medicine

involving more than 600 children between 4
and 11 months of age who were enrolled in a
Learning Early About Peanut Allergy (LEAP)
study. Following the study, the National
Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases,
part of the National Institutes of Health,
unveiled new peanut allergy guidelines in
January of this year, saying the early introduction of peanut-containing foods to infants
may prevent the development of peanut
allergy.
Assured Bites sought a health claim for a
substance containing peanut flour and oats.
The substance is part of a seven-day introduction and maintenance kit where small
amounts of peanut are introduced to infants
and children. The quantity corresponds to the
amount used in the LEAP study. The sachet
of peanut flour is added to food, such as cereal, yogurt or applesauce.
