Our gluten tests were used to detect contamination by barley gluten in gluten-free beers at various stages of production in the lab. The accuracy of these results was verified up by the very rigorous LC/MS/MS method. Read the open access version of the published manuscript here.

On August 5, 2013, the US FDA released their final ruling on the definition of the term “gluten-free” in food labeling. This regulation requires that foods labeled gluten-free must contain less than 20 ppm of gluten.
The FDA further ruled that any scientifically validated method for the detection of gluten may be used to verify a manufacturer’s gluten-free claim. Both the ELISA Technologies EZ Gluten assay and AllerTek ELISA have been validated through the AOAC Performance Tested Methods program to meet this requirement.
