Allergen Awareness - Texas - All counties (Training & Exam Bundle)

$18.00

The Importance Of Allergen Awareness

The state of Texas is known for its incredible Mexican food, however this type of cooking is not always conducive for a food allergy sufferer, with wheat, and cheese playing such a prominent role in the cooking process.

This is why it is important that staff working within the foodservice industry are trained and knowledgeable on food allergies, so they can serve a customer with confidence and competency when an order comes in.

Although there are no specific regulations for food workers to have specific allergen awareness training, it is highly recommended.

"Taking the Always Food Safe Company’s Online Allergen Awareness Course was absolutely time well spent...

The format was clear and easy to follow, and the content was exactly what workers in the trenches – both front and back of the house – need to know to ace this particular, important and often overlooked part of their jobs.

Having the option to learn the material by either watching the videos or reading the text makes it possible for all employees to benefit from the course. In either case, the program is as entertaining as it is informative, making it easy to understand and absorb the material.

The sections on hidden allergens and cross contamination are especially welcome, being points that may be easily overlooked by cooks and waiters alike.

...Overall, the production is of a very high quality, and the content and delivery spot on. The downloadable PDF of allergens is a useful bonus."
