ELISA Technologies has produced an easy to use home test that will quickly detect the presence of gluten in foods. It is sensitive enough to detect levels of gluten as low as 10 parts per million (ppm). This simple test is also small and portable for use at restaurants or when traveling. It can be used to test individual ingredients in foods, or to test finished and cooked products.
In the EZ Gluten® Test, a food sample is ground to a fine consistency, added to the gluten extraction solution, and then mixed. A few drops of the sample extract are placed into a test tube. The EZ Gluten® test strip is placed into the test tube and allowed to absorb the sample extract. After 10 minutes, the test strip can be read visually for the presence of gluten in the sample.
Food manufacturers often wish to test the results of their cleaning procedures through the use of surface swabs. The following instructions describe how the EZ Gluten® Test can be used in conjunction with swabs to verify that gluten has been sufficiently removed from equipment and other surfaces.
