The exemption for the wine labeling regarding casein and ovalbumin, according the European Directive 2003/89/EC, has been revoked following the negative Scientific  Opinion of European Food Safety Authority. EFSA concludes that wines fined with casein / caseinate / milk products / egg derivates may trigger adverse reactions in susceptible individuals. Thereby, allergen labeling of wines become compulsory from June 2012. In the wine manufacturing process, casein and egg albumin are frequently used as fining agent proteins for the fining of white, red wines and rosé.
