Thank you both for the information. I had not come across the GS1’s extension. I will take a closer look at it to see if it will work for me.

With this kind of thing we are wary of getting too detailed in schema.org <http://schema.org/> without some evidence that there's a reasonable chance of a consuming application using it. Particularly in this kind of situation where there are various levels of detail we might go into. The GS1 representation looks pretty thorough - does it capture what you're looking for?

It's based on the terms used by the food industry, which are then expressed in line with schema.org <http://schema.org/>'s semantics. Where there are direct correlations with schema.org <http://schema.org/>, these are expressed.

> I was thinking that a useful extension to schema.org <http://schema.org/> would be related to allergies from a consumer perspective. For example, a property which encoded whether or not a product is processed or packages in facilities free from peanuts. Other consumers only care that there are no shared lines with peanuts and some just want to know that best practices are followed when it comes to cleaning the lines.
