How to test if your ‘gluten free’ food is really gluten free

MD of gluten test company reveals high levels of gluten in 'gluten free' products

I don't know about you, but there have been many times where I know I've been glutened, but I can't work out where it came from. And if it happens repeatedly, it can drive you nuts! (actually, it was nuts once, where flour had been used as a flow agent, but I digress).

The other day I was chatting to the MD of a company who makes the gluten home test kit I use to see if I could offer the test for sale through my site. They make gluten testers for industry and had tested a range of off-the-shelf gluten free items.

Except that a lot of these items turned out not to be gluten free at all. This ties in with my own experience - I have tested 'gluten free' food on several occasions only to find it contained over the new allowed level of gluten (20ppm).

Happily, I can now tell you that you can get the gluten test kits through my site at the link below. There's a way to order test kits in the US there too. Happy testing!
