Deerland Enzymes has released a white paper that addresses testing for gluten proteins in enzyme products, entitled The use and limitations of the Competitive ELISA to detect proteins used in protease enzyme fermentation applications.
The market for gluten free products continues to grow, and along with the clear establishment of this consumer segment comes an increased demand for accurate gluten testing for products claiming to meet the “gluten free” standard of <20ppm. As a company with clinically-studied supplements formulated specifically for the digestion of gluten, Deerland Enzymes found it prudent to take the lead in determining the most accurate method for testing enzyme supplements for the presence of gluten.
