Why GlutenTox® Testing is Ideal for Your Gluten-Free Product

As a food manufacturer that makes gluten-free products, your worst nightmare is hearing that someone got sick from your food. And in today’s digital environment, when something like that happens it can go viral, threatening the future of your company.

The most important thing that you can do when making gluten-free products is to make sure that it lives up to its label: gluten free. According to the FDA, a product must have fewer than 20 ppm (parts per million) gluten to be considered gluten free. However, the FDA doesn’t require manufacturers to test products labeled gluten free. Manufacturers just have to ensure that labeling requirements are met on their products.

While there are many tests out there that allow you to test products for gluten, GlutenTox® testing is one that has become an industry standard for many manufacturers. There are lots of reasons why GlutenTox® testing is so appealing. Here are a few of the reasons it is used in manufacturing facilities, restaurants, and commercial kitchens around the world.


GlutenTox® testing has been around for more than a decade. As gluten-free products are relatively new, that type of longevity is a big deal. Over that time, the testing has become even more robust and has helped thousands of manufacturers.


GlutenTox® testing can go far beyond the testing that the FDA requires for gluten-free labeling. It can detect gluten at 10 ppm or even as little as 5 ppm. This is important because some people will get sick from a product that has 20 ppm gluten in it.


GlutenTox® testing comes in a kit that can be used at a manufacturer’s facility without being sent away for validation. This means no delay in production if you are on a tight schedule. If any problems are detected, it can mean immediate changes rather than waiting days or weeks. This can also prevent recalls if products are shipped before getting results back.
