If you really want to know if your food is gluten-free…a gluten-free test kit

by Randi Markowitz on October 19th, 2009


Want to know if your food is really, truly gluten-free? Depending on your own individual sensitivity to gluten, you might want to consider investing in a box of E-Z Gluten test strips. The E-Z Gluten test strip kit is easy to use, and you can have results in about 5 minutes. We use the E-Z Gluten test strips to batch-test our products in our catering kitchen.

gf_test_stripsI'm not suggesting that it is always practical to carry the test strips around with you, but for those of you who are prone to reactions with the slightest exposure to gluten, you may want to consider this. The test strips will measure down to 10ppm for any gluten contamination. You can order them online from Elisa Technologies.

Of course, you don't have to worry about any of these problems when you order from Gluten Free Houston, or buy our products at American Health Foods in Tomball or at A Moveable Feast in Memorial--our kitchen is 100% gluten free.

    $12 to test… no thanks… if it was $1 that would be one thing, but $12 is ridiculous.

    This seems like it would be helpful for eating out.

    This is the first I’ve heard of these test strips. Certainly is worth checking into further. I can see how this may be a big help to people just starting on the gluten free diet.
