Sesame has become the ninth allergen to be regulated by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) after President Joe Biden signed the Food Allergy Safety, Treatment, Education and Research (FASTER) act into law in April 2021.

This new law won’t come into force for another 20 months, until 1 January 2023, to allow food businesses to prepare as they will now be required to indicate on food labels that a product contains sesame. Sesame has been a regulated allergen in the UK and EU for some time, but US legislation did not require it to be labelled on food until now.

It’s another big win for hypersensitive consumers, but it’s also another law for retailers and manufacturers to get their heads around and adjust to – and the sooner that process begins, the better the chance of achieving compliance across the industry.
