GLUTEN is the common name for a combination of water-insoluble proteins (gliadin and glutenin) found in the seeds of wheat, rye and barley. Celiac disease affects nearly 1% of the populations of Europe and North America with gluten sensitivity affecting nearly 6% of people in the United States. Persons with gluten sensitivity have a heightened response to ingested gluten, resulting in a range of symptoms including bowel irritability, anemia, arthralgia, fatigue, infertility, dermatitis, neurological disorders and celiac disease.

For persons with gluten sensitivity the only treatment for these conditions is the adoption of a gluten-free diet, avoiding foods containing wheat, rye, barley and other related cereal grains. Due to the high prevalence of these grains in the food supply, even products that do not contain wheat, rye or barley as ingredients may still contain trace amounts that are significant enough to produce symptoms in gluten-sensitive individuals.

ELISA Technologies offers Gluten and Gliadin analytical testing. Please visit our Testing Services page for more information.
