GlutenTox Home is a rapid and user-friendly test for the detection of gluten in food and drinks which is harmful for people who suffer from celiac disease.
According to the Codex Alimentarius Commission, food can be considered as “gluten-free” if the amount of gluten does not exceed 20 parts per million (ppm), and is considered as “very low in gluten content” if the amount of gluten does not exceed 100 ppm.
The protocol of the kit is adjusted to detect 20 ppm of gluten, taking into account international norms (Codex Alimentarius), however it is also possible to test for 5 ppm.
GlutenTox Home contains a new antibody called G12 that was developed to specifically recognize the toxic fraction of gluten present in wheat, barley, rye and oat that triggers the auto-immune response in celiac patients. The specificity of this technique prevents accidental ingestion of food that contains these cereals.
One advantages of this technology is the capacity to detect levels of some oat varieties that can be are harmful for people who suffer from celiac disease.
