Hi When I search for an product by its itemid, All fields with Allergen details have value null.

I searched for egg as it should have Allergen_ContainsEggs set to true but it was set to null.

“allergen_contains_eggs” is showing null value

We do not currently support allergen information for 99% of foods. We do not have any plans to expand coverage of allergen data at time.

Are there any updates on allergen data becoming available?

We are not planning to make allergen data available at this time, as it is difficult to procure from most food manufacturers and restaurants.
